Hege Rudi Standal Paul Wenzel Geissler
Norway is a major producer of electronic waste. What consequences does this have for recipients in Africa?

While some Norwegian electronic waste is treated domestically, a lot of used electronics travel far across the globe - among other places, to Tanzania, where they are used, re-used, and discarded.

In this seminar, researchers from Norway and Tanzania discuss the effects of this in Tanzania, and what can be done about it in Norway.
