National Information Technology Authority-Uganda, under the Regional Communications Infrastructure Program (RCIP) Phase V-Uganda embarked on an exercise to conduct a national survey on waste from electronic and electrical equipment (e-waste).

The overall objective of the assignment was to establish the baseline situation of e-waste in Uganda and collate existing e-waste management initiatives so as to aid development of appropriate policies, guidelines and regulations for effective e-waste management in the country.

This report presents the findings of the baseline survey on waste from electrical and electronic equipment in Uganda amongst Hospitals or and Health Centres, Universities and Tertiary Institutions, Business entities or Private sector, Device repairers, Device Manufacturers/ Importers/ Assemblers or retailers, Broadcasting Companies, Local Governments, MDAs, Telecommunications Operators, E-Waste handlers and other categories across the country.

The study used a mixture of qualitative and quantitative approaches to facilitate triangulation of the findings and help enrich the outcomes. Using desk reviews, researchers extracted a variety of literature and datasets on key issues as well as policy relating to the e-waste across the country.

In addition, the study conducted focus group discussions with key informants selected from repairers and members of the National Steering Committee on e-waste. The study conducted a nationally representative survey that collected data for a comprehensive set of indicators to measure the existing volumes of e-waste, e-waste management practices and awareness.
