The Collaboration’s South African centre is based in Johannesburg (CEE Joburg) and was established in April 2012. CEE Joburg 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 fulfils this mandate by offering training and support to environmental scientists, managers, and practitioners who wish to undertake or use systematic reviews.
CEE Joburg is led by Dr Carina van Rooyen and Dr Ruth Stewart. Additional guidance is provided by Professor Thea de Wet, the director of the Centre for Anthropological Research (CfAR) where CEE Joburg is hosted.
