To read the Basel Convention's Technical Guidelines on environmentally sound management of e-waste, in 6 @UN languages, go to: basel.int/Implementation/Ewa… #GlobalAgreements for a #HealthyPlanet
80% of e-waste ends up in landfill or informally recycled, exposing workers to dangerous substances. @UNEP_Europe hosts the interim secretariat of the #UN E-waste Coalition, helping countries to reduce and manage e-waste, while creating jobs and protecting #health & #nature.
