The Environmental Evaluation Unit (EEU) is an independent, self-funded consulting, research and training unit based at the University of Cape Town. Founded in 1985, the EEU has established itself as a centre of excellence in the fields of integrated environmental management and sustainable development. During this time, the EEU has undertaken work throughout South Africa and the SADC countries, and has provided expertise to leading private and public corporations, research institutions, planning and development organisations, state departments, local authorities and communities.
The EEU has successfully integrated consulting, research, training and community outreach as core activities of its operation. Thus, it has implemented a wide diversity of projects that have contributed to academic debates at the same time as having practical implications on the ground.
