The Efficacy of Climate Change Law in Ethiopia


Climate change is continuing all over the world including Ethiopia. This research investigates the efficacy of Ethiopian law in responding climate change. It employed qualitative research methodology whereby international legal instruments as well as literature have been analysed. Relevant national legal instruments and literature have also been investigated. The research found that no comprehensive climate change law is available and the regulation of the issue is left to diverse laws, strategies and plans. It identified that the implementation is not satisfactory, in general. It recommends comprehensive law to be enacted by the Ethiopian Government and bring the duties of regulation into one institute.
