Abstract


An attempt has been made to examine the concurrent relationship between global warming and economic development focusing on the danger it inheres in developing countries. To achieve this, the paper commenced with the conceptualization of global warming and economic development, the natural and human causes of global warming, the general consequences of global warming and the international initiatives directed at combating global warming. Also, the nexus between global warming and economic development was highlighted and specifically, the danger of global warming in developing countries was the major part of the discourse. Ultimately, the paper concluded that both developing and developed countries should sink their differences, cooperate maximally to conscientiously implement the strategies for combating global warming, so as to ensure that the means of subsistence for future generation is guaranteed.
