Biography: David Kafwamba is a Ph.D. scholarship holder at the Global Center of Spatial Methods for Urban Sustainability (GCSMUS) at the Technische Universität Berlin. His research interests center on human-environment interrelationships: how they are imagined, practiced, and represented in policy. Hence, his prospective Ph.D. research seeks to investigate how more-than-human geographies could lead to more environmentally sustainable urban settlements.
Employed in academia, David lectures at the University of Zambia at the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies. He holds a Bachelor of Arts (with Ed.) degree in Geography from the University of Zambia, and a Master of Science degree in Environment and Development from the University of Reading, United Kingdom. His master’s research investigated the role of environmental values in Climate Change decision-making processes within the Clean Development Mechanism in Zambia.
