AbstractWithin the framework of the partnership agreement that was signed in July 2006, UNIDO and Microsoft plan to make secondary PCs available to SMEs in developing economies in a safe and sustainable way. As part of this initiative it is intended to support the establishment of local sustainable e-waste recycling facilities.
The study's objectives are to provide a situational analysis with respect to the generation and management of electronic waste in Uganda. It aims:
  • to provide the necessary data to define a solution for handling the e-waste associated with the UNIDO/Microsoft refurbishment project.
  • to provide general data about the e-waste situation in Uganda and thus the study should also serve for further initiatives by other stakeholders, e.g. for the developing a policy framework, etc.
