This small study is an initial feasibility study, designed to give some indication of the numbers of vehicles and the economics of any waste management system that might be appropriate to dealing with the problem. This study looks at two issues: what does it take to strip a typical wrecked Tarawa vehicle so that it can be recycled; and how many vehicles might there be in South Tarawa that need some waste management.
This base line study was launched to determine the problem on the amount of e-waste that has been generated with some self induced due to lack of quality control at point of entry. The objective of the report is to determine the existing status of electrical and electronic waste in Kiribati in identifying the source, the flow and the quantities of e-waste generated with a view to have a better insight understanding of this in the country.
This Pacific Country/Territory Profile in the solid waste and recycling sector was published in 2018 as part of a compendium of fifteen individual country profiles that seek to identify and quantify the opportunity to improve the resource recovery of fifteen common commodities1 present in the solid waste stream.
The Kiribati Chemical and Waste Management Advice and Banaba Reconnaissance consultancy was undertaken from 15–29 July 2008. The consultancy was necessary due to several hazardous waste management issues identified on Tarawa and Banaba since 2005.
Basel Convention, is an international treaty that was designed to reduce the movements of hazardous waste between nations, and specifically to prevent transfer of hazardous waste from developed to less developed countries (LDCs). It does not, however, address the movement of radioactive waste. This fact-sheet details the national reporting and implementation information for Kiribati as one of the parties to the convention.

The waste audit was undertaken by Nauru Rehabilitation Corporation and the Department of Commerce, Industry and Environment for Nauru in close collaboration with T+TI (remotely) supporting the delivery of the waste audit and other key stakeholders. The audit took place from 7 to 15 December 2020, excluding 13 December 2020.
This assessment provides the broad findings of the research and investigation undertaken by the UoM team in relation to Kiribati. It provides:

Nauru faces many economic and environmental challenges. In the 1970s the country experienced an economic boom due to phosphate mining, however, because of mismanagement of the revenue, the country currently has limited financial resources to undertake many of its development programmes including environmentally sound waste management. In the face of a range of environmental, social and economic threats from poor waste management and pollution, and in the context of the limited resources, this National Solid Waste Management Strategy is developed as a matter of priority.
