AbstractVodafone and Forum for the Future share a goal to facilitate improved management of the life cycle of mobile phones in developing countries. In particular we would like to help address the problems associated with mobile related e-waste. This report, based on primary research with consumers and repairers in Kenya, analyses the need, and outlines the potential, for intervention on the e-waste issue. Specifically it identifies a set of potential solutions that could be developed further, and outlines which stakeholders might be best placed to develop and manage those solutions. We also expect the project to raise awareness and debate around the issues, and enable further action.
