Climate Change and the Domestic Energy Sector- A Comparative Analysis

Kafayat Adeyemi


Climate change is a global issue that is not evenly distributed in causes and effects. While the industrialized nations are the major causes of climate change, the effects of climate change hardest hit the developing nations. The whole of sub Saharan Africa account for less than 2 percent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The developed countries with greater historical responsibility for climate change and a greater capacity to act should take the lead in dealing with climate change. On the other hand, the emerging economies and developing economies should have mitigation measures in place for their own emissions.  The domestic energy sector is the largest energy-consuming sector in Nigeria and Uganda with the effects of climate change quite visibly seen in both countries. This paper compares the climate change impacts, policies, governance structures and method of approach to climate change in both countries and puts forth recommendations on how to mitigate and adapt to climate change in the domestic energy sector.
