            Revision notes

            Dear Editors:

            We are delighted to submit a revised version of our manuscript titled “Ticking Time Bomb: Implications of the Covid-19 Lockdown on E-Waste Management in Developing Countries” for publication in the journal UCL Open: Environment.

            We have revised the manuscript in line with the comments raised by both reviewers. Changes made are highlighted in yellow in the attached file. Summary of the revisions made are as follows:

            Reviewer 1

            • Discussions in the manuscript has been broadened to include legal framework and implementation challenges in other countries other than Nigeria.
            • Summary table highlighting the existing legal frameworks and challenges have been included as suggested.
            • Appropriate recommendations to address the identified challenges have been proposed.

             

            Reviewer 2

            • Discussions in the manuscript has been broadened to include legal framework and implementation challenges in other countries.
            • General discussions on COVID-19 have been broadened to relate the discussions to the environment.
            • There are no studies reporting direct evidence of increased importation of ICT devices and electronic waste during the pandemic. However, studies which suggest increased use of ICT devices and options and increased consumption of electrical energy arising from increased use of electronics and ICT devices during the pandemic have been included.
            • Brief discussion of impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the management of waste was included.
            • Other suggestions regarding typographical errors and rephrasing statements have been addressed.

            We thank you for your kind consideration.

            Yours Sincerely,
