Assessment Study
Country Website:
In Kenya, a baseline study of e-waste with a focus on desktop PCs, notebooks and printers was conducted. Through data analysis, a literature review, field visits and interviews, as well as a series of stakeholder workshops, the study aimed to map e-waste flows in Nairobi, and to identify formal and informal role players in the e-waste recovery and recycling chain. It also analysed the policy and legislative environment affecting e-waste, and looked at its social, economic and environmental impact, including health and safety issues for e-waste recyclers.
