Over the past two decades, the global market of Electrical and Electronic
Equipment (EEE) continues to grow exponentially, while the life span of those products
becomes shorter and shorter. Due to Rapid economic growth, urbanization and
industrialization, demand for consumer goods, has been increased for both the
consumption and the production of EEE. Any improperly disposed electronics can be
classified as E-waste. While the Government and the industry are unanimous on the view
that E-waste needs to be efficiently managed from a social and environmental standpoint,
there still is a need for them to mutually arrive at a consensus by understanding the
practical and cultural realities on ground.

Information and telecommunications technology (ICT) and systematic networking has pierced nearly every aspect of modern life. It is positively affecting human life even in the most remote areas of the developing countries. The rapid growth in Information and telecommunications technology has led to an improvement in the capacity of computers. But the products lifetime is decreasing the waste electrical and electronic equipment (e-waste) is increase in the large quantity in annually. Information and telecommunications technology development in most developing countries, particularly in Africa, depends more on secondhand or refurbished EEEs most of which are imported without confirmatory testing for functionality. So as a result, large quantities of e-waste are presently being managed in these countries. The challenges facing the developing countries in e-waste management include: an absence of infrastructure for appropriate waste management, an absence of legislation dealing specifically with e-waste, an absence of any framework for end-of-life (EoL) product take-back or implementation of extended producer responsibility (EPR).
