Short CV

Geoffrey Mukwada is a Professor of Environmental Geography, a field in which he holds a PhD. His research interests are in environmental conservation, natural resource management, climate change and rural livelihoods in mountain environments. He is currently involved in climate research projects in southern Africa with special focus on environmental impacts of climate change, mitigation, resilience and related social-ecological systems. Most of his publications are on these issues. He is the coordinator of the Mountain-to-Mountain Project, a research and development project involving collaboration between the University of the Free State in South Africa and the Appalachian State University in the United States. He is also the coordinator of the University Staff Doctoral Programme, a project involving a consortium of five universities, including the University of the Free state and University of Venda in South Africa, and the Appalachia State University, Colorado State University and University of Montana in the United States. He is currently developing a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) in the Drakensberg Mountain Region. The WSN comprises automatic weather stations. He is working with the Mountain Climate Research Group which he recently founded, comprising masters and doctoral students, postdoctoral research fellows, as well as staff. Professor Mukwada holds a C2 National Research Foundation rating. He also holds professional qualifications in education, human resource management and project management.
