AbstractThis report provides the findings of an e-waste assessment study conducted by the Cleaner Production Centre of Tanzania in collaboration with EMPA of Switzerland within the framework of the “UNIDO e-waste initiative for Tanzania”. The overall objective of the study was to get a reliable overview of the e-waste landscape in Tanzania, through a baseline study focusing mainly on computers and other IT equipment including mobile phones and TVs. The methodology used involved mainly data acquisition and analysis of the e-waste through literature review, consultations with stakeholders, field study questionnaires and observations by the expert team in the field. Field studies covered four urban centres (Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Moshi and Zanzibar) focusing mainly in Dar es Salaam for the in-depth field assessment.
