Robert Ddamulira, a doctoral student in the energy and environmental policy program, has published a peer-reviewed article, "Governing climate change for sustainable food production: A case study of emerging markets," in Corporate Governance and Sustainability Review

The article addresses three research questions: How does climate change impact food production? What are the governance challenges associated with managing such impacts? What are the conditions for future success in managing the impacts of climate change on food production? 

To answer these questions, Ddamulira undertook a document review and analysis to address these various aspects with a major focus on East Africa. The study finds that climate change affects food production largely through its physical impacts on precipitation and increased frequency of extreme weather events. Within a context of weak governance, climate change further challenges governance institutional structures and mechanisms. 

The study concludes that specific aspects of the prevailing climate change governance regime requires major reforms (particularly the role of the state, corporations and civil society) while other climate governance mechanisms need to be completely overhauled (for example through the establishment of a new World Environment Organization).
