Role of Public Governance in Arena of Climate Change and Food Security
Devi Prasad Juvvadi

Changes in production capacity, seasonality, the availability of suitable land and access to water, are all intertwined with issues of governance. It is a fact that the climate is changing and, given the levels of greenhouse gases already in atmosphere, will continue to do so.
