Sustainable forest management will play an important part in global efforts to combat climate change, according to a senior official with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

The head of the agency's Forestry Department, Eva Muller, has been making the case for the world's forests as countries meet in Marrakech, Morocco, for the latest UN climate change conference.

Sandra Ferrari asked Ms Muller to explain the close link between forests and climate change.
