This study on the law of climate change – illustrated by the case of Benin, a developing country exposed to the harmful effects of climate change – aims to highlight the effectiveness of climate law in this country. Beninese climate law is imperfectly developed and poorly applied, under the influence of international law developed by the international community. Despite the scientific and ingenious character of the international legal climate regime, binding, based on equity, scalable, and perfectible research has revealed the limiting nature of the contribution of the law to the mitigation of climate change. In the perspective of improving the fight against climate change, this study proposed the strengthening of the international institutional framework and the improvement of climate governance underway in Benin.
