Dr Mangaliso Gondwe's research combines fields of aquatic ecology, limnology and biogeochemistry to assess effects of multiple stressors including climate change on lakes and wetlands in southern Africa.
Dr Gondwe is the current coordinator of the “Water and Land” specialization course offered at ORI in partial fulfilment of the Regional (SADC) Master’s Degree Programme in Integrated Water Resources Management (MSc in IWRM), a flagship programme of WaterNet, the SADC subsidiary institution for capacity building in Water Resources Management in the SADC region, Kenya and Uganda.
Dr Gondwe is the current coordinator and main facilitator of a unique Research Methodology Course offered at ORI to train graduate students and public/private researchers in research methodology, especially in proposal development, using the systems approach.
