The 4 Dimensions of Electronic and Electrical Waste in an African Context

The issue of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is topical in Africa, especially in Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya. This is due to the ever-increasing production, distribution and consumption of electronic and electrical equipment. Ironically, today’s corporate entities focus on pre-production and production activities. There is less emphasis on the post-consumption effect of their products on consumers and the environment. The presentation concentrates on post-consumption issues of electronic and electrical equipment. It highlights the four dimensions, including human health issues, environmental impact, social dimensions and economic/business benefits. The discussion centers on the personal and environmental health effects of e-waste. This includes the pollution of aquatic and terrestrial life, the social reasons why people engage in e-waste businesses, as well as the economic benefits of engaging in eco-businesses.
