Dr. Richard Mbih is an Assistant Teaching Professor of African Studies and Rural Sociology at Penn State University. He is a Geographer by training and holds a PhD in Geography and Social Sciences from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. His research interests focus on agro-pastoral sustainability, environmental conflicts and development studies in Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in Northwest Cameroon. Currently, Professor Mbih is engaged in two human-environmental security related research projects. The first examines the effects of climate change on agro-pastoral conflicts between indigenous farming and Fulani pastoral communities in Northwest Cameroon. The study also explores the adaptation and mitigation strategies adopted by vulnerable African communities in the face of environmental change. The second project investigates the effects of the current Anglophone crisis in Cameroon on livelihood security and human displacement, leading to the marginalization of the English-speaking minority in Cameroon who are now refugees in neighboring Nigeria, the United States and Mexico.
