Aderonke Abimbola Ojo, Tosin Ezekiel Ayo


Climate change is an environmental issue of global concern. It is an issue of concern to nations across the globe that can only be adequately addressed at the level of international environmental law. This paper sought to make a critical legal appraisal of a number and strength of the international environmental legal responses to the challenges posed by climate change across the earth. It took a legal cursory look and an appraising excursion into the relationship among climate change and international investment law, international trade law, international human rights law and global health. It concludes that a robust, comprehensive and more formidable international legal response coupled with an appropriate enforcement mechanism is desired to stem the tide of the challenges posed by climate change across the globe.
