Abstract

Iraq and Nigeria are two of the most vulnerable countries globally with regard to the effects of climate change on environmental degradation, on their fragile economies, on various aspects of national and community development, on the livelihoods of their citizens (especially the low-income and the poor), on social order, and on national security. While Iraq has not yet developed a climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy, Nigeria has developed one that is clearly doomed to fail. There are many reasons why Iraq has not developed a strategy and why Nigeria’s will fail.
