President Muhammadu Buhari has left Nigeria for Paris where he will be joining over 50 world leaders at the One Planet Summit.

The Summit will hold at La Seine Musicale, on Seguin Island in Western Paris, and is jointly organised by United Nations World Bank, the French Government and Non-Government Organisations.

It will open on Tuesday, December 12 and offer world leaders an opportunity to reach an agreement on what to do to save the earth from the negative effects of climate change.

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.

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.”

An earlier statement by the presidency highlighted other things that President Buhari would be doing in Paris before the Summit begins.

The President travelled after he spent some time in his hometown Daura, Katsina State, where he visited his farm and also expressed hopes that some images shared from the farm would inspire Nigerians to pursue farming and create a country that produces what it eats.
