Webinar Series on Understanding the E-waste Value Chain in Humanitarian Settings
This November, we have two webinars coming up on the rising issue of e-waste in humanitarian settings and on the complexity of e-waste management: Many displaced people rely on off-grid solutions such as solar lanterns, solar home systems or electronic cookstoves. These devices are cost-effective and relatively environmentally friendly compared to diesel-powered generators. However, when they near their end-of-life, the critical question of what happens once they are beyond repair, remains.
The second webinar of the series dives deeper into the policy landscape for e-waste management in displacement settings. A detailed presentation on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on concrete policy examples from the ground. Practitioners from different countries will showcase their experiences and learnings, along with an open Q&A session with the audience.
We will discuss these issues, and more, with experts from the field. Register now to join us! Read more…
