Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Management Plan

Electronic Waste (E-waste) Management Plan

January 2022


Electronic Waste (E-waste) Management Plan (E-Waste Management Plan/EWMP)


The East African Community (EAC) Secretariat will manage environmental and social risks and impacts of the project throughout the project life cycle in a systematic manner, proportionate to the nature and scale of the project and to the potential risks and impacts. The generation of waste is one of those risks that must be considered during the preplanning and implementation phases of the project. Waste management planning for the project should be conducted early as possible to identify sound management practices and procedures within legal and environmental frameworks. Possible waste streams that may be generated during project implementation may include papers and electronic wastes. However, the focus of this plan is on Electronic waste or E-waste. An E-Waste Management Plan (EWMP) is used to describe the waste management related issues within the Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) industry sector and specify the best way to address these issues, giving specific actions, targets, and timeframes. This E-waste management plan should be implemented throughout the project’s lifecycle to protect the environment, biodiversity, and habitats, safeguard the health of the local communities, and comply with The World Bank Environment, Safety and Health Guidelines (ESHG), Environmental and Social Standards (ESS), Tanzanian legislations and regulations, and Good International Industry Practice (GIIP).

Stakeholder Engagement Plan

EAC Regional Statistics Development and Harmonization Project

January 2020


Eastern Africa Regional Statistics Program-for-Results





The East African Community (EAC), like other economic blocks in Africa has sought to widen and develop the economic, political social, and cultural integration of East African countries using the building blocks of Customs Union, Common Market, Monetary Union, and ultimately the Political Federation. A lot has been achieved for the past couple of years as a result. There are however still challenges hampering these efforts, the major one being weak implementation of regional decisions at national level due to a lack of consistent evidence and knowledge to corroborate the benefits and costs of regional integration. This is mainly due to insufficient harmonized data necessary to track progress and impacts of regional integration as well as regional and national economic performance, which are the main inputs for strengthening national, regional and global monitoring and evaluation systems.

The need to have consistent harmonised and updated data that reflects the regional statistics necessitated the EAC secretariat participate in the Regional Statistics Development and Harmonization (RSDH) project to further its cause of deepening economic integration within the East African region and enhance service delivery. The major objectives of the program are to:
• Improve data quality,
• Improve harmonization of compilation practices to enhance comparability of statistics in the region,
• Improve statistical human resource capacity,
• Improve data dissemination practices and platforms,
• Enhance statistical literacy among the general population in the region, and
• Upgrade IT and statistical infrastructure.
