    Abstract The Regional E-waste Monitor for the CIS + Georgia 2021 provides an assessment of statistics, legislation, and management infrastructure of e-waste in Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Armenia, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan. The amount of e-waste generated in the region increased by 50 per cent to 2.5 Mt (8.7 kg/inh) in 2019. E-waste collection for environmentally sound management takes place in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine, and showed that 3.2 per cent of total e-waste are managed in an environmental sound manner. Some countries have no e-waste collection (e.g. Georgia, Kyrgyzstan) due to lack of organised separate collection infrastructure. All twelve countries in the region have well-developed legal and regulatory frameworks in the field of waste management, but six of them have no specific legislations nor Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) systems in place for regulating e-waste. Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine have adopted e-waste-specific legislation or regulation. Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia regulate e-waste through bylaws in the national legislation (i.e. by specifically mentioning e-waste in their general waste law). Armenia and Ukraine are in a drafting process of the EPR for e-waste, and Uzbekistan has e-waste legislation in draft development.
