Abstract:

This paper examines the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Protocol and goes further to analyse the mechanisms for emission reduction provided under the Treaties. The paper also considers the implementation constraints of the Mechanisms in developing countries and particularly, in Nigeria. The paper concludes that the Treaties have not been optimally effective in its implementation in Nigeria owing to factors ranging from non-domestication, poverty, corruption and poor regulatory framework to low level of awareness. Recommendations for minimizing the constraints identified are proposed.
