Abstract: Global warming and climate change issues have considerably attracted worldwide attention and led to the realization that there is a growing vulnerability of the society to climatic variations and changes. Along the coasts of West Africa, for instance, a lot of impact resulting from climatic variations and changes have been manifested on various environmental processes and human activities in the region. They have also been critical factors influencing natural resources planning and management. With the expected impacts of global warming and climate change, it becomes necessary to examine the possible response measures which could either ameliorate or completely avert the adverse consequences.
