Buhari Departs For France On Monday
As you may already know, the earth is in trouble - it is warming faster than predicted and scientists say time is fast running out on humanity.
To decide on what to do to save the planet, world leaders will be meeting in France on Tuesday.
Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari will participate alongside over 50 world leaders in the meeting tagged: “One Planet Summit” in Paris.
He will leave for Paris on Monday and return Thursday, December 14.
The summit, jointly organised by the United Nations, the World Bank Group, and the French Government in partnership with non-governmental organisations concerned about reversing the negative effects of climate change, like Bloomberg Philanthropies, holds at the eco-friendly La Seine Musicale, situated on the picturesque Seguin Island in western Paris.
The main focus of the summit, with the theme, “Climate Change Financing,” according to the organisers, will be to innovatively pool public and private finance “to support and accelerate our common efforts to fight climate change.”
Before heading for the Summit venue, the Nigerian leader will attend a lunch hosted by President Emmanuel Macron of France for Heads of State and Governments at the Elysee Palace.
President Buhari and other world leaders and participants will make presentations under four sub-themes namely: Scaling-up Finance for Climate Action; Greening Finance for Sustainable Business; Accelerating Local and Regional Climate Action; and Strengthening Policies for Ecological and Inclusive Transition.
