"Everyone is responsible" for moving the climate change agenda forward following last month's historic agreement in Paris.

That's the view of Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, widely accepted to be the author of the whole "sustainable development" concept.

More than 190 countries agreed to limit global temperature rises due to emissions to less than 2 degrees Celsius.

The first female Prime Minster of Norway is now UN Foundation Board Vice Chair, and she was awarded the Zayed Future Energy Prize 2016 on Tuesday.

Basma Bitar-Baghal caught up with Dr Brundtland at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
