Developing nations need assistance to build "green" economies or they will continue to have to rely on fossil fuels and non-renewable resources.

That's the warning from Amina Mohammed, Nigeria's Environment Minister and a former Special Advisor to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.

Ms Mohammed helped author the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and attended this month's signing of the Paris Agreement on climate action at UN Headquarters in New York.

Janie Cangelosi asked Ms Mohammed if she believes countries will follow through on the agreement.
