dc.description.abstract The International Geographical Commission (IGU) Commission on African Studies (CAS) held its second annual conference at the University of Zululand in June 2019. One of the direct products of the conference is the publication of these conference proceedings, whose authors are drawn from different parts of Africa, and include post-graduate students. The papers in this volume engage with various aspects of the conference theme, which is Africa in the global imaginary: Towards internationally competitive science and research. The authors represent different disciplinary backgrounds in the natural and social sciences and humanities. The chapters in the publication are organised under the following themes and sections: climate change issues in Africa, environmental problems in Africa, environmental conservation, natural resource use and governance, globalisation and regional economic integration in Africa, rural development and water resources. The contributions illustrate various research projects in Africa as well as different debates on natural and social reality on the continent. Some of the contributions also reveal innovative approaches to the study and/or analysis of natural and/or social reality, the results and conclusions of which are thought-provoking. en_US
