Human actions and inactions have been identified as the major source of climate change. Human behaviours that promote climate change are bush burning, deforestation, hunting, air pollution and improper waste management among others. Despite the devastating effects of the changes in climate, little or no attention is being paid to modification of human behaviour as related to the environment. This study therefore highlighted indicators of climate change and discussed various forms of human behaviours and activities that promote climate change. It also recommended ways by which counselling strategies could be employed in promoting environmental friendly behaviour, enhance favourable climatic condition and sustainable development


The paper discusses the interplay of human behaviour in relation to climate change and need for behavioural change as away of ensuring sustainable development
