|E-waste management is ranked as a high priority area for capacity-building in Yemen. There are currently neither policies nor technical guidelines addressing the management of the waste stream in the country. It is thus a priority that these documents are developed, whether for e-waste on its own, or as part of initiatives on hazardous waste. Financial, social and institutional areas also require a degree of capacity-building. Efforts to improve e-waste management will require funding, interest from governmental institutions, and public support.
