Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation
My research interests include climate change vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation and population, health and environment. These areas provide adaptation/mitigation actions which when proactively applied, benefit coastal communities and resources to withstand adverse impacts of changing climate. This reduces threats to human welfare. An integrated approach of these interest areas of mine, also presents unique opportunities for solving human development and conservation challenges through a multifaceted ecological-social-economics nexus in policy formulation. As a research fellow, I seek to contribute to scientific data/knowledge through applied research to inform policy decisions making for the sustainable use of our coastal resources in Africa and the world at large. In the long term, I endeavour to contribute the mandate of the Centre through innovative research and teaching to achieve its vision of becoming an African Centre of Excellence in Coastal Resilience contributing to global efforts to safeguard healthy ecosystems.
