Sudanese Vice-President Othman Mohamed Yousif Kibir has headed to Niamey the capital of Niger to participate in the conference of the round table for financing the climate investment plan in the Sahel and Sahara.

The conference lasts for two days and aims to provide funding for the projects presented at the conference and support 10 million families to enable them to cope with climate change and create 200,000 jobs for young people.

Heads of state of 17 countries in the Sahel region of Africa will hold a summit on Monday in Niamey to approve a climate investment plan worth $400 billion over 12 years, the Niger government said Wednesday.

Regional and international leaders have linked global warming to conflicts and food insecurity in the Sahel and warned of an ecological disaster caused by diminishing water resources.
