Lecture Description

EPR has become established as the way to finance e-waste management - but in low- and middle-income countries the implementation can be slow. How can we support the establishment of sustainable recycling infrastructure while EPR systems are being set up? With innovative finance approaches it could be possible to provide initial framework conditions that support the set-up of local e-waste ecosystems. In the session, representatives from the PREVENT pilot projects and working group will present their findings on innovative financing mechanisms for e-waste.
