SNAS in collaboration with the UNESCO – Cousteau Ecotechnie Chair, Future University, organized a workshop to highlight and discuss the problem of electronic and electrical waste.

A survey of the accumulation of E & E waste was conducted in some areas of Khartoum, Omdurman and Khartoum North.  E & E waste in some of the academic institutions was also surveyed.  Visits were made to some of the peripheral markets where E & E waste is sold. A documentary video was prepared and shown during the workshop. The survey and workshop material preparation was jointly conducted   by Eng. Hassan Baba  and Prof. Suad Sulaiman with assistance of several young graduates in physics and engineering.

LG & Digitech gratefully covered some of the expenses of the workshop.

A 2nd regional workshop is planned to include institutions from nearby African and Arab countries.  Experiences of management of E & E waste will be widely included.

Several recommendations from the workshop suggested other activities to be done to address the problem of E & E.
