Professor Imasiku Anayawa Nyambe is a Professor of geology and Coordinator of the University of Zambia (UNZA) Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Centre, a Centre that he established for academic studies (postgraduate diploma, Masters and PhDs in IWRM). He is a Fellow of the Zambian Academy of Sciences.  Formerly, Director of the Directorate of Research and Graduate Studies (DRGS), responsible for research and postgraduate studies at the University of Zambia (UNZA), 2009-2017, which he helped transform.  He has a Ph.D in earth sciences (sedimentology) 1993, an M.Sc in geology (hydrogeology /sedimentology) 1989 from Canada and B. Min. Sciences (geology) 1982 from the University of Zambia.  Prof. Nyambe has worked in the copper mining industry in Zambia (1982-1986) before joining the University of Zambia (UNZA) where he has over 25 years’ experience as a geo-scientist undertaking research in the areas of geology, hydrogeology, environment and mining, Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), and basic Remote Sensing and GIS.  Prof. Nyambe has published over 150 articles as book chapters, in journals, technical reports, presentation papers, posters and abstracts presented at many conferences, fora, symposia, workshops and meetings all over the world, and has travelled extensively.  His involvement in research on mining and the environment earned him an award from Zambia Environmental Management Agency in 2012 and awarded a National Science and Technology Council’s Certificate of Achievement for the exceptional contribution to research and innovations. 

 On Public Service, Prof. Nyambe is the Chairperson of the National (Zambia) Heritage Conservation Commission Board and member of the UNESCO’s Intergovermental Council on International Hydrological Programme (IHP) as a Zambian representative.  He is also the Acting Chairperson of Zambia Water Partnership – the Zambian Chapter of the Global Water Partnership. He is a founder member and became a Chairperson for Zambia Water Forum and Exhibition since 2011 and now a national 3 day annual event – a platform for sharing and disseminating of information in the Water and related sectors in a similar manner to that of the World Water Forum or Africa Water Forum.  Prof. Nyambe has been the Secretary General of the Geological Society of Africa (2004-2008) and a life Member; and President of the Geological Society of Zambia (GSZ) (2000-2010).
