Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi will present Sunday a report on climate change at the African Summit in Addis Ababa during a closed session on the second day of the summit, MENA repoerted.

El-Sisi will present Egypt's efforts at the climate conference in Paris last November-December, as he was heading the council of African leaders at the conference and managed to convince European countries to offer an aid of $5 billion to help Africa face climate change.

Two initiatives to help the continent face the consequences of climate change will be included in the report.

The first is about expanding the use of renewable energy and the second is about ways to help Africa adapt to climate change.

The Egyptian president seeks to raise financial support of $20 billion for Africa as climate change aid.
