E-waste in the MENA region

Study and regional benchmarking

In developing and transition countries, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE - e-waste) is mostly treated in an insufficient way, involving considerable impacts on human health and environment. At the same time, e-waste offers economically very interesting opportunities for recycling which are however hardly exploited.

For the regional SWEEP-NET programme, Global21 carries out a study comparing the legal situation, treatment technologies and initiatives regarding e-waste focusing mainly on waste from information and communication technologies (ICT).


The study covers 10 countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Mauritania, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen), suggests a regional benchmarking and develops a list of recommandations.
