Dr Kefasi Nyikahadzoi is a senior lecturer with a Doctorate of Philosophy in Applied Social Sciences. Broadly, his research interest is on ecological economics and issues of institutional economics. Within this broad spectrum, he has done research in the areas of rural development and rural livelihoods and food security. In his research, he focuses on how the interface of society and natural resources can be rationalized for the benefit of the poor people living with these resources. He is also interested in understanding how institutional arrangements within the smallholder-farming sector can be optimized for food security and improved livelihoods of the poor smallholder farmers. In undertaking his studies, Dr K. Nyikahadzoi uses mixed research methods. He has undertaken research on fisheries management focusing on riverine, small dams, inshore and pelagic fisheries; issues of livelihoods among smallholder farmers; and social issues of orphans and vulnerable children.
