The world is showing a "growing determination" to address climate change, according to one of the UN's leading experts on the subject.

Christiana Figueres is the head of the UN climate change secretariat (UNFCCC).

In December, the international community agreed a wide-ranging package aimed at tackling climatic issues.

Basma Bitar-Baghal has been speaking with Ms Figueres at the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, where experts are discussing clean energy and water, among other issues.
