The international community needs to turn the "aspirations" of the Paris Climate Change Agreement "into action".

That's according to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, as more than 165 countries sat down to sign the historic agreement at UN headquarters on Friday.

More than 190 countries came together last December and agreed to limit global temperature rises to less than 2 degrees Celsius.
