The United Nations announced that President Abdel Fattah El Sisi will take part in the Climate Action Summit due to be held on Monday 23/9/2019 in New York on the fringe of the United Nations General Assembly meetings.
During the summit, the president will review the vision of Egypt, Africa and developing nations vis-a-vis climate change which poses grave threat to the whole world.
Meanwhile, United Nations Secretary General António Guterres emphasized that, with just over 10 years to go, the world is not on track to hit targets related to sustainable development, and urged world leaders to “take the decisions necessary, in order to come together more effectively to make sure that the 2030 Agenda is successfully implemented”.
“We need more investment, more political action, more priority for a fair globalization”, said Guterres in an interview on Thursday, when asked about his expectations for the first-ever Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Summit, on September 24-25 at New York headquarters.
