|There is an increasing need for better hazardous waste management in Mongolia, given that the country imports a significant amount of second-hand goods from China, South Korea, Singapore and the United States. Hazardous chemical waste and e-waste are often generated due to the short life-span of these products. Waste is also generated due to the lack of a repair industry and the lack of spare parts for products with partial defects. To address the waste stream, Mongolia has ratified international treaties (such as the Basel, Rotterdam, and Stockholm Conventions), while national legislation has been in force since 2000. Strategic plans for hazardous waste management (such as the National Programme on Decreasing Waste) are also in place. However, the responses suggest that a responsibility system (of producers or waste generators) would ensure the contribution of more stakeholders towards waste management. A partnership with the Hungarian firm “Kornezet” is expected to develop facilities for hazardous waste disposal, however more participation from the private sector would be beneficial.
