The head of the United Nations has called on world leaders to work together to reduce climate change, following the publication of a new report highlighting the potential results of human impact on the environment.

The study highlighted an increased likelihood of extreme weather conditions and rising global sea levels, with significant consequences for billions of people.

Speaking at the launch of the report, Mr Ki-moon said: "All humanity must now assume responsibility for climate change."

"We can usher in a new era of global partnership, one that helps lift all boats on the rising tide of climate-friendly development," he added.
