Copenhagen Climate Change Conference
Do we know what has been agreed?
President Obama said a "meaningful and unprecedented breakthrough" had been reached between the US and China, Brazil, India and South Africa.
Reports suggest the following points were agreed
• A commitment from wealthy and key developing nations to limit global warming to 2C
• Between $25bn and $30bn in climate funds for poorer nations over the period 2010-12, with an annual sum of $100bn envisaged by 2020
• A mechanism to verify each state's compliance with its commitment to curb greenhouse gas emissions
As world leaders gather in Copenhagen for the Climate Change Summit 2009, BBC reporters have travelled the globe to see the impact of the issue on people and the places they live in.
