This week Computer Aid launched an e-waste guide to help NGOs and civil society organisations campaign for policy change. The 52 page guide, developed in partnership with the Balkans E-Waste Management Advocacy Network and was funded by the European Union, is entitled Electronics and e-waste a booklet for advocacy and it aims to reduce the amount of electronic equipment produced and encourages reuse and recycling of redundent IT equipment through providing practical information about how to communicate such issues to politicians, the media and public.
