Dr Bang’s academic profile reveals interdisciplinary knowledge in Applied Geology (BSc, MSc) obtained in Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and the University of Buea, respectively, and a second MSc (Environment and Development) and PhD (International Development) obtained at the University of East Anglia, UK. His PhD thesis addressed core themes of disaster management, social vulnerability, risk perception and relocation decisions. In addition, Henry has acquired a UK higher education qualification—post graduate certificate in education (PGCE) from Bournemouth University. Furthermore, Dr Bang has achieved fellowship of the UK Higher Education Academy.

Research

Dr Bang is an expert in African disaster management with interdisciplinary research interests that cover various themes including disaster risk management/analysis, governance of disaster risks, institutional/policy/legislative frameworks for disaster management, climate risks, crisis communication, complex emergencies and the nexus between disasters, development, and indigenous knowledge. Of peculiar interest are the trajectories of vulnerability and resilience to disaster risks in developing countries.

Henry has participated and directed research projects. As project director and PI, he has successfully completed his latest GCRF funded project entitled “Enhancing Livelihood Resilience of Protracted Internally Displaced Populations (IDPs) in West Africa”. Strategically, ELIED was aimed to provide an agile response to livelihood challenges faced by internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to the Cameroon Anglophone Crisis, now an acute complex emergency (Bang and Balgah, 2022). The project was facilitated by in-country collaborators (academics, NGOs, research assistants etc.). Through semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions and the administration of close to 2,000 survey questionnaires involving local NGOs, IDPs and government officials, ELIED has generated abundant data. In the near future, the various data sets obtained from the project will be processed for various outputs especially articles, reports and conference presentations.

Dr Bang has been Co I & principal researcher in other completed projects that were carried out in West Africa...

The COVID-19 was unprecedented, yet it provided a rare opportunity to research one of the worst health crises to ever impact human civilisation. Dr Bang, in collaboration with academics and health professionals in other Universities in the UK and abroad researched various aspects of the pandemic. Through empirical data that was generated from Cameroon during the pandemic, Henry led the investigation of various COVID-19 disaster management themes including the COVID-19 crisis management in Cameroon, Cameroon’s resilience to the pandemic, and the COVID-19 crisis communication in Cameroon. Other aspects of the research examined community health education during the pandemic and the impact of the pandemic on the local economy. The research has led to the publication of 5 academic papers on the COVID-19 pandemic (3 on core disaster management themes) in peer reviewed international journals.
