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.
