E-Waste Academy – Managers’ Edition

February 22, 2016 - February 26, 2016

February 22-26, 2016

Following two successful previous sessions (2012 and 2014) the E-Waste Academy – Managers Edition (EWAM) will take place for the third time, on 22–26 February 2016, in Nairobi, Kenya. EWAM focuses on policy development and e-waste system design, and targets policymakers, government officials (PMs) and representatives of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), such as recyclers, refurbishers and collectors. It will provide a neutral platform for discussion and exchange of best practices and expert feedback.

EWAM has been developed as a project under the Solve the E-Waste Problem Initiative (Step), which is led by the UNU-IAS Operating Unit in Bonn, Sustainable Cycles (SCYCLE). EWAM receives technical, financial and administrative support from Step members. The academy has proven to be vital in building capacity in e-waste research, policy and management to foster partnerships and establish opportunities for further collaboration. Viewing the e-waste issue in its entirety, rather than through the lens of a specific discipline, the academy adopts a multi-stakeholder approach by providing tailored and targeted training and capacity building for different stakeholder groups.
