In addition to the full SR report, EviEM also publishes a fact sheet and a summary for each systematic review. Reports of systematic maps are accompanied by a fact sheet only.
Mistra EviEM was founded in January 2012 with the purpose of encouraging a scientifically evaluated approach to decisions in environmental management. The Council seeks to improve documentation for decision-making in Swedish environmental management through systematic reviews of research results in areas connected to environmental management.
It is mainly public agencies or other decision-makers and stakeholders in the environmental sector that propose the subjects for Mistra EviEM’s reviews. It is they who should then be able to benefit from the results and apply them in practical environmental management. However, the reviews give no recommendations as to how the results should be turned into environmental improvement measures. Instead, it is the task of decision-makers and other stakeholders to ensure that the reviews are used.
Mistra (the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research) is to provide funds totaling some SEK 60 million for EviEM’s activities in the period 2012–2017. EviEM is governed by an independent Executive Committee, and has a Secretariat — comprising seven employees — that occupies premises at the international research institute Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). This ensures the Council’s independence, both financially and politically.
