The issue of climate change is becoming more threatening not only to the socio-economic lives of nations but also to human existence, especially in the developing nations of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Small Island States. In Nigeria, for example, the effects of climate change on people, particularly the legion of the poor, are severe. For instance, farmers, pastoralists, fishing communities and town dwellers are vulnerable to changes in water availability and lower agricultural productivity. Warmer climate increases the risk of contracting vector-born diseases such as malaria. The economic implications of these changes are enormous. Receipts from agricultural activities which account for over half the jobs and GDP in Nigeria may decline sharply. Thus, as national revenues are strained, demand for public expenditures will increase. Climate change also has the potential of undermining the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs, such as the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger by 2015.
