The Basel Convention Coordinating Centre for the African Region organized the inception workshop of the PACE II Pilot Project titled:

“Promoting the use of the Basel Convention technical guidelines on transboundary movements of WEEE and UEEE, and enhancing associated national reporting obligations in Nigeria.”

  1. raise awareness on the guidance document among relevant stakeholders
  2. improve capacities and effectiveness for use of the guidance document among key stakeholders
  3. enhance the capacities of national officials to meet reporting obligations on transboundary movement of WEEE.

Proposed Project Activities
