One-hundred-twenty-five of the world’s leaders have gathered to discuss what can be done to counter climate change, ahead of another conference in Paris next year.

Ahead of the summit Sweden has presented a new project, known as “New Climate Economy”.

The details will be presented during the conference, and will look at how economic growth, social development and the fight against poverty can be combined with reducing humans’ impact on the climate.
