The LibraWEEE is one of the outcomes of the EU funded project Countering WEEE Illegal Trade (CWIT) that came to an end in August 2015. The CWIT project was funded under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development and was undertaken by INTERPOL, United Nations University (UNU), United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute, the WEEE Forum, the Cross Border Research Association, Zanasi & Partners and Compliance and Risks. More about the CWIT project here.
The LibraWEEE was originally conceived as a knowledge database of complementary studies and initiatives that focused on understanding the dynamics of the WEEE industry, illegal flows of WEEE, and also the actors concerned with the fight against organised crime.
Today the LibraWEEE, maintained by the WEEE Forum, is more open in scope and compiles any useful resource related to electronic waste.

The WEEE Forum is the world’s largest multi-national centre of competence as regards operational know-how concerning the management of waste electrical and electronic equipment (or ‘WEEE’, for short). It is a not-for-profit association of 52 WEEE producer responsibility organisations across the world and was founded in April 2002.
