The study focused on the Impact of climate change on food security in
central Uganda, a case study of Lwamagwa sub-county in Rakai district.
Issues of climate change depends on various factors but this study
specifically focused; on indicators of climate change in Lwamaggwa sub
county; assess how climate change affect food security in Lwamaggwa
Sub County; to examine the challenges of climate change in Lwamaggwa
Sub County and to identify possible measures that can be taken to
improve on food security in Lwamaggwa Sub County. The study used
both descriptive and exploratory research designs to explore and describe
the implications of climate change on food security in the study area.
The findings noted that change in climate effects into decline in
farm/ crop produce hence making lives of people who depend on crops for
their survival very complicated. It was further established that food
security in Lwamagwa will continue to decline if appropriate measures to
climate change are to adopted, this is because the effects of climate
change are largely due to human activities that included the
encroachment of the human population onto the fragile ecological;
systems that help in the modification of climate like wetlands and forests.
Different measures were being used to ensure that crop farmers avoided
total loss in case of adverse climate change effects came. However, they
had to be used interdependently as one measure would no fully solve the
effects of climate change on the overall socio-economic livelihoods of crop
farmers in Lwamaggwa Sub County. This study therefore recommend that
coming up with structured policies on environmental protection in Rakai
district and development of control of poor farming methods will improve
food security in the area and enhance economic growth and development through increased food production.
