E-waste au Ghana : sur la route des déchets électroniques

Anas Aremeyaw ANAS, Muntaka CHASANT and Bénédicte KURZEN

After long invading Asia, electronic waste (e-waste) from Europe and the United States is now arriving in large quantities and in violation of international treaties in West African countries, including Ghana. Despite its political stability, Ghana is faced with the proliferation of informal open-air dumps. It was against this backdrop that investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and photojournalists Muntaka Chasant and Bénédicte Kurzen (NOOR), laureates of the 13th Carmignac Photojournalism Award, produced their report. The exhibition explores the ramifications of e-waste trafficking from Europe to Ghana, revealing the opacity of this globalized circuit and highlighting the opportunities and environmental impact of this economy. Statistics from the latest United Nations report on e-waste complete this far-reaching investigation.
