The E-Waste Academy – Manager (EWAM) cohort is going to Costa Rica in March 2019. The upcoming EWAM, organized by UNU-ViE SCYCLE, is part of a broader initiative, managed by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) with financial support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The overall project aims at strengthening national initiatives and enhancing regional cooperation for the environmentally sound management of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) in Waste of Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in the Latin American Countries.

In this context, the EWAM will provide a regional forum for different stakeholders, including government representatives, policy makers, industry managers, etc. to offer practical skills in the design and implementation of e-waste management solutions. The EWAM participants will have the unique opportunity to exchange existing practices, discuss challenges, and develop a better, informed decision-making process in this field.
