Mbunya Francis Nkemnyi

Resource Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development
Executive Director
My wider research and career can also be situated with the theme the environment-development nexus with focus on gorilla conservation in Cameroon. My interests are in exploring how local livelihood challenges could be overcome given the controversy between local livelihood and Cross River gorilla conservation. I am also interested in understanding how institutional arrangement play out during the process of negotiations and implementation of conservation projects (how are stakeholders’ interests prioritised and eventually implemented).
I work as an executive director for a local non-profit organisation in Cameroon (Resource Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development- http://rcesdcam.org/). The focus of this non-profit organisation is on building local capacity of recent graduates to take up proactive roles in environment-development research.
