Examination of connections to urban wetlands: A case study of Marlborough Wetland in Harare, Zimbabwe

Esther’s research focus is driven by the widespread degradation and loss of wetlands in Zimbabwe and the urban agriculture that is one cause of such spatial and temporal loss. Her research engages farmers who are practising urban agriculture on wetlands by promoting dialogue for the development of locally appropriate intervention strategies. Other research interests are water and sanitation, climate variability and change, soil conservation, waste management and land use changes. 

Currently a PhD candidate, Esther holds a Masters of Science in Environmental Policy and Planning (University of Zimbabwe) and a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and Social Sciences (Africa University) and is a former lecturer in Geography and Environmental Studies at Zimbabwe Open University.
