The managers of the European Union’s Electronic Waste Management (E-MAGIN) project in Ghana, have held their second meeting to review the project.

In 2018, the EU launched a 1.3-million-euro project on waste from electronics and electrical equipment (WEEE). The project, known as E-MAGIN, has the objective to help operators in the sector, mainly the informal sector, to engage in proper waste recycling processes, formalise their businesses and also conform to regulations, especially provisions in Ghana's E-waste Act (Act 917).

Among other things, the project equips small- and medium-size firms engaged in this activity, with environmental health and safety business management skills, financial literacy, marketing, and dismantling skills.

The review meeting was used to evaluate the activities of the first year of the project and to plan for the next phase of the project.

Speaking at the programme at the Synergies Institute in Achimota, Accra, the Programme Officer, Ms Susana Martins expressed optimism about the E-MAGIN project and how it would contribute to the sustainable development agenda of the EU.

For her part, E-MAGIN Project Coordinator, Prof Rosemond Boohene tasked the project consortium to work hard to help achieve the project goals.

Other consortium members present were Mr Lambert Faabeluon, Director of Standards Compliance & Enforcement (Environmental Protection Agency, Ghana), Jürgen Meinel (City Waste Recycling Company Limited), Morton Hemkhaus (Adelphi, Germany). The Project is made up of four organisations with the University of Cape Coast being the lead.
