The human, environmental and financial cost of climate change is becoming increasingly unbearable, the UN Secretary-General told world leaders on Tuesday.

Ban Ki-moon was speaking as he opened a one-day Climate Summit at UN headquarters in New York to galvanize international action on the issue.

It's expected the summit will provide momentum for a global agreement which it's hoped will be signed by world governments next year.
