Buhari To Attend Climate Change Summit In Poland
You may not be able to understand climate change by the mere mention of the word, but you have wondered why it is still very hot by November ending when the harmattan wind would have started blowing.
That is one of the effects of climate change. It is one of the greatest challenges confronting the planet earth, and every year leaders across the world gather to discuss how they can deal with the problem.
This year’s gathering will be held in Katowice, Poland from December 2 – 14 and Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari will be joining over 80 Heads of State to attend the conference, tagged COP24.
The conference is organized by the Bonn-based UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC/ UN Climate Change) and is presided over by Poland.
The key objective of the meeting is to adopt the implementation guidelines of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
Climate experts say the meeting is crucial because it ensures the true potential of the Paris Agreement can be unleashed, including ramping up climate action so that the central goal of the agreement can be achieved, namely to hold the global average temperature to as close as possible to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
