The Basel Convention Regional Center for Central America and Mexico (CRCB-CAM), with support from the Basel Convention Regional Center for South America (CRS-CB) and US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), will host this discussion of management of post-consumer electronic waste ("e-waste"). Among the topics expected to be discussed are CRCB-CAM's proposal under preparation, in coordination with the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and UN Development Programme (UNDP), to create an e-waste recycling facility for Central America and the Caribbean in El Salvador. The Dialogue will be followed on 25-27 April by the Fifth Physical Meeting of the Basel Convention's Partnership for Action on Computing Equipment (PACE) Working Group.
