Collaboration for Environmental Evidence (CEE)

The Collaboration for Environmental Evidence (CEE) is an open community of scientists and managers working towards a sustainable global environment and the conservation of biodiversity. The Collaboration for Environmental Evidence’s Johannesburg Centre (CEE Joburg) was established in April 2012 and arose from the Collaboration’s recognition of the need for a regional centre based in Africa. The main mandate of CEE Joburg is to contribute to the work of the Collaboration by encouraging the need for systematic reviews to inform environmental policy and practice in Africa. As a team of experienced reviewers, CEE Joburg fulfills this mandate by offering training and support to environmental scientists, managers, and practitioners who wish to undertake or use systematic reviews.

The collaboration is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on the enthusiastic dedication of scientists and managers to provide a reliable source of evidence.

Systematic reviews provide a rigorous and transparent methodology with which to assess the impacts of human activity on the environment, as well as the effectiveness of policy and management interventions. You can link to the collaboration’s small but fast-growing Library of Environmental Evidence, which is on the collaboration’s main website.

CEE Joburg is led by Dr Carina van Rooyen, with support from the coordinator Natalie Tannous, and researcher Likhwa Ncube. It is hosted at the Africa Centre for Evidence under the directorship of Professor Ruth Stewart.
