The highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro in Northern Tanzania is the focus of my research on climate change and social change. The amount of ice and snow covering its peak is shrinking and may be gone entirely by 2020. The relationship of global climate change to this and other physical alterations of the mountain is the subject of much debate and international research. At the same time, Mount Kilimanjaro is extremely significant in the lives of local people. It is central to agriculture and tourism, and has great symbolic and cultural value among societies in surrounding countries and across the continent. In my PhD research working with groups linked to the mountain, I am interested in how communities conceptualise and participate in these local-global and material-social relationships, and how they shape responses to climate change and other developmental issues that affect their lives. - Winner of the LSE Research Festival 2014 ESRC DTC prize.
