Environmental management services

The CSIR Environmental Management Services group has over 22 years’ experience in environmental assessment and management. The group has conducted studies in more than 17 countries in Africa (predominantly west and southern Africa) and further afield.

The group aims to ensure the sustainability of projects and plans using environmental and socio-economic criteria. This is done by providing a range of environmental services that can be applied at a strategic regional level or a site-specific scale. The CSIR provides these services to government, international agencies, private sector, as well as non-governmental organisations locally and internationally.

The group specialises in conducting complex environmental studies in challenging environments and for emerging and innovative technologies.
