Issue: Illegal waste shipment to developing countries has been a problem for them
Agbobloboshie is one of the worlds greatest e waste dump. This causes environmental and safety problems affecting the health of locals.
What are these environmental(air, water soil) and safety issues?
There are international treaties like the basel convention that voilates dumping of e waste to non OECD countries, yet the developed countries some how find their e-waste to ghana.
Why are the authorities allowing this,are there any regulatory controls in ghana, any local legislations, are they enforced? what are the challenges to its enforcement.
