Electronic waste in Indonesia continues to grow at an alarming rate. It is estimated that by 2040, the amount of e-waste generated will reach almost double the current amount. If not addressed, this condition will have a direct or indirect negative impact on aspects of life such as the environment, health, society, and economy. At present, Indonesia's e-waste management efforts still rely on general rules that do not specifically regulate e-waste, such as the Law on Hazardous and Toxic Waste. In addition, there is no research that discusses e-waste management strategies in Indonesia from a multi-actor perspective. To fill this gap, this article aims to develop relevant e-waste management strategies to be implemented in Indonesia from a multi-actor perspective. The initial stage of this research is to collect e-waste management strategies that have been implemented or proposed from various literatures. Furthermore, the list of strategies that have been collected is assessed for their relevance on a four-level integer scale by experts from the government, non-government organizations, electronics manufacturers, recyclers, and academia which represent the stakeholders involved in decision-making of e-waste management. Then, the validation process is performed using the content validity index (CVI) method, where the results of this method will show consensus and valid strategies that are important for policymakers and researchers in the future.
