COP 21: Ministers work through night in bid for deal

Ministers from around the world have worked through the night as the talks for a new deal on climate change enter their final days. Efforts are being made to break divisions on key issues in the agreement which aims to avoid dangerous climate change and provide finance for poor countries to deal with the impacts of global warming. A draft of the text for the agreement released on Wednesday contained the potential for ambitious targets on curbing rising global temperatures and cutting emissions over the coming decades, as well as weaker options, and a new text is expected later today.

All we need is a strong agreement.”
