James George Sekonya

PhD Researcher in Environmental & Geographical Sciences, University of Cape Town

I have trained in Ecology and Geography and my research interests lie in the use and trade of Non-timber Forest Products (NTFPs) and sustainable rural livelihoods. Currently my focus is on the cross-border value chains of NTFPs and the governance of common pool resources for equitable distribution of benefits. This work takes place under the auspices of the DST/NRF Bio-economy Research Chair based at University of Cape Town.
