Recent hurricanes in the Caribbean, monsoon flooding in Asia and other weather-related disasters around the globe are an indication that the world needs to do more to address the impact of climate change.

That's according to Erik Solheim, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme, which is based in Nairobi.

Mr Solheim was in New York to meet with world leaders participating in the annual debate in the UN General Assembly, which wrapped up on Monday.

Michelle Alves de Lima asked him about some of the topics he discussed with them.
