|Ethiopia (Forum for Environment)’s responses to the needs assessment survey suggest that the country’s technical and scientific capacity for waste management requires the most strengthening. Skilled human resources are needed especially for the management of healthcare waste, industrial waste, and MSW. However, the responses also show that the country’s waste management policies are fragmented. Certain waste streams, such as e-waste, are unregulated, and thus there are no means of monitoring whether existing disposal methods are safe. Problems regarding institutional coordination and public awareness on the topic of waste management can also be drawn from Ethiopia’s responses.
