Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi will travel to Paris on Sunday November 29 to attend a climate change conference along with more than 140 world leaders.

The conference, touted as “the biggest conference on global warming of our time“, will be held in Paris from November 30 to December 10. The conference is the 21st installment of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21).

Egypt’s President Sisi will deliver a speech at the conference on behalf of African states. During the speech, President Sisi is expected to urge international action on climate change.

Egypt will be representing African countries in Paris as it is currently the head of the African Union’s climate change committee.

President Sisi will also meet with French President Hollande to discuss ways to tackle climate change. The Egyptian President will also meet other French government officials to discuss bilateral relations and issues of concern, such as terrorism and trade.

The last conference was held in Denmark in 2009. Egypt recently attracted a number of investments in renewable energy, with a focus on solar energy.
