UN climate conference
Almost two hundred nations are meeting in Poland over two weeks to try turn the carbon-cutting vision set in Paris in 2015 into reality.
The past four years have been the hottest on record and global emissions are rising again, when they need to fall by half by 2030. Climate action must be increased fivefold to limit warming to the 1.5C scientists advise.
The World Bank announced its record $100bn of climate funding is to be split equally between projects to cut emissions and those protecting people from the floods, storms and droughts that global warming is making worse.
