In 2019, the world generated a striking 53.6 million metric tons of E-waste, Asian continent generated 24.9 MT, the largest in the world, of which India generated 3.2 MT, and is the third-largest producer of E-waste after China and the U.S.A. The per capita generation of E-waste in India stands at 2.4 Kg. Despite the government’s initiatives, 90 percent of this waste is handled and managed by the informal sector. It is the need of the hour to understand and act on how to sustainably manage e-waste. Accurate data on e-waste generation, collection, and disposal are integral to how a country formulates and evolves its policies and practices on waste management.  

The mode of training would be online (Self-Paced) with a proper mix of interactive sessions with subject matter experts on E-waste and its management. The course provides the flexibility of on-demand literature, virtual presentations, and case studies. Assessment exercises and group discussion on the modules is provided for assessment and engagement of the participants. 

Waste management practitioners, officials from central and state urban departments and municipalities, urban and town planners, academicians, students, and NGO representatives.
