UNEP forum calls for action on E-waste

E-waste

Eighteen African states, the UN, the private sector and other groups have agreed on a set of priority actions to better manage electronic waste – or ewaste – in Africa.

The forum – the first of its kind on the continent – was organized by the Basel Convention and the UN Environment Programme. Delegates say e-waste could represent an important growth sector for the African economy.

Bryan Coll reports from Nairobi.
