The Collaboration for Environmental Evidence is an open community of scientists and managers working towards a sustainable global environment and the conservation of biodiversity. The collaboration seeks to synthesise evidence
on issues of greatest concern to environmental policy and practice.
CEE has formal charitable status and its Objects are:
The protection of the environment and conservation of biodiversity through preparation, maintenance promotion and dissemination of systematic reviews of the effects and impacts of environment management interventions, for the public benefit.
Syntheses take the form of systematic
reviews providing rigorous and transparent methodology to
assess the impacts of human activity and effectiveness of policy
and management interventions. This website contains a small but
fast growing Library
of Environmental Evidence in the form of systematic reviews.
The Collaboration is not for profit
and relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of scientists and
managers to provide a reliable source of evidence to continuously
improve the effectiveness of our actions.
Please browse our website to find out
more and do not hesitate to contact us
with any questions or suggestions you might have.
