The success of the Cancun Climate Change summit in Mexico was due to an “intense commitment” from countries across the world to come to a deal.

After the perceived failure of the last summit in Copenhagen in Denmark, progress was made in a number of areas including curbing greenhouse gas emissions and the financing of climate change activities.

Robert Orr, the senior advisor on climate change to the United Nations Secretary-General attended the UN-backed summit.

Daniel Dickinson asked him what was achieved.
