Welcome to the Homepage of E-MAGIN GHANA
The project E-Waste Management in Ghana (E-MAGIN GHANA) is funded by the European Union and is part of the SWITCH Africa Green Programme (Phase II) of the European Union. Between 01/2018 and 12/2021 the project team will focus their activities on eight key regions in Ghana: Greater Accra, Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Volta and the Western-, Eastern-, Central- and Northern- Region.
The project aims to improve the management of e-waste in these regions towards a Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) through an integrated multi-stakeholder approach. E-MAGIN aims to contribute to the effective implementation of the Ghanaian legal framework targeting e- waste by fostering formalization of informal Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs), establishing a collection mechanism for e-waste, disseminating best practices through capacity building and training of trainers, providing decision support and creating awareness among a wide range of stakeholders. Within a project consortium led by University of Cape Coast, national and international experts of the Ghana National Cleaner Production Centre, City Waste Recycling and adelphi work together on a sustainable strategy to improve the livelihood and the environmental conditions in the target regions.
