Abstract
The world grapples with the scourge of climate change and is threatening greater consequences, with the developing countries suffering the effects more than the developed countries. This study identifies the causes of this in the sub-Saharan Africa as low-level of awareness of climate change, non-implementation of environmental regulations where available, low-level of development, corruption and lack of technology to cope with the situation. The study seeks to identify the basic issues required to mitigate the effects in the sub-Saharan Africa, as above stated, proposing the creation and implementation of an effective international legal norm as in the case of the European Union, which employed common regional regulations and policies on climate change and the environment in general, thus bringing the region to the fore-front on climate change. it emphasises common legal and policies enforcement across the region as a sure panacea to improving its situation. The study adopts Nigeria as a case study for the region, being an influencial and regional leader, and a major contributor to world's carbon emission as an oil-producing country.
