Global E-Waste Monitor 2017: Quantities, Flows and Resources

A joint effort of the ITU, the United Nations University and the International Solid Waste Association, the Global E-Waste Monitor 2017 provides a comprehensive overview of global e-waste statistics. The report features up-to-date information on the amounts of e-waste generated and recycled, makes predictions until 2021 and provides information on the progress made in terms of e-waste legislation.

The e-waste volumes are indicative of the recycling industry's potential to recover secondary resources, as well as setting environmental targets for detoxification. The report highlights the need for better e-waste data and information for policymakers to track progress, identify the need for action and to achieve sustainable development, including the SDGs.
