|As with industrial waste, policies have existed in Cote d’Ivoire since 2009 for hazardous waste management, including healthcare waste. However, again, funds are lacking for equipment, such as autoclaves, to safely dispose of hazardous waste. From a societal perspective, awareness among waste generators is inadequate, and there is only limited enforcement of environmental policies. Therefore, due to the lack of funds and of commitment, hazardous waste is often found alongside MSW or disposed outside of landfills. Within hazardous waste, e-waste has been often neglected by authorities. The import of e-waste against the Basel Convention is not strictly regulated. Cote d’Ivoire thus also requires regulatory expansion and enforcement to cover hazardous waste, and in particular, e-waste.
