Join our online workshop on Circular economy policy and business solutions to e-waste challenges in Africa at the World Resources Forum 2021. By 2050, people are set to consume an estimated 140 billion tons of natural resources like minerals, ores, fossil fuels and biomass per year, compared to 60 billion tons in 2005 (IRP, 2011). A record 53.6 million metric tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste was generated worldwide in 2019, up 21 per cent in just five years, according to the UN’s Global E-waste Monitor 2020. Numbers leave no doubt action on e-waste management is needed. Tune it to our online event. Get more information.
