More Info

After spending two years in the heart of Africa with the Peace Corps, Jordan Blekking learned that rural villages in Africa suffer from food shortages during extreme weather conditions. His passion to solve this crisis would later became the focus of his work as an Ostrom Research Awardee. 

With the support of the Ostrom Workshop and the National Science Foundation, Jordan has formed a team to study the impact of climate change on food security in Zambia. 

Their goal? Fighting food insecurity in developing countries by analyzing weather patterns and how farmers adjust their farmings practices. 

This project is just one example of how your gift to the Workshop will help fund the research of students like Jordan and assist them in changing the world. The future of policy and governance depends on the work of today’s researchers, and the Ostrom Workshop is proud to support students and faculty engaged in interdisciplinary research. Your gifts help us provide resources needed to analyze and understand the most pressing issues of today and tomorrow. With your support, there is no world issue too large to take on.

Please make your gift today!
