    Abstract StEP, UNU, and UNEP IETC have been working extensively on e-waste issues and made an attempt to look into the future of the problem in order to initiate policy level discussions on the challenges and opportunities ahead. Having insight into the future will help policymakers and industries, as well as other stakeholders, to make better strategic decisions. Forecasting is also necessary vis-à-vis strategic concepts towards sustainable development, such as circular economy and the UN’s Agenda 2030. This paper maps several dimensions of the e-waste problem and provides a snapshot into future challenges. It looks into what we can anticipate in terms of how the use of e-products and management of e-waste could evolve. The goal is to initiate public discussions on these unforeseen challenges and opportunities, in order for the political agendas of governments and businesses to address such issues early on.
