Researchers, environmentalists and engineers all around the globe expresses deep concerns on the climate change and the global warming of the planet. The combustion of fossil fuels churning out gases like carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxides which leads to climate change. Warmer temperatures can also be attributed to deforestation. Global environmental hazards are resultant largely from the serious problems of climate change. There is a lot of ignorance about the effect of global warming and climate change consequences, some of its impacts, and the consequence will grievously affect ecological diversity and balance. This study discusses the challenges, causes and impacts of global warming and climate changes and provides some remedies in resolving some these issues. Adapting to risk reduction can be used to handle climate change and climate change problems. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has proposed a three step technique to manage the problem on Carbon finance, involves abolishment of hurdles to climate friendly technologies, setting up systematic course of action for clean development mechanism (CDM) and expand projects through millennium development goal (MDG) carbon facility. An Integrated Territorial Climate Plan (ITCP) was created for regional governments to outline their operations inclusive of financing climate change relocation procedure.
