Former Maldives president Mohamed Nasheed said there would be "hell to pay" if countries failed to take significant steps.

Countries are struggling to complete the complex "rulebook" of the Paris climate agreement but they are also under pressure to boost their promises to cut carbon.

Mohamed Nasheed said, "It's just madness for us to allow global CO2 levels (in the atmosphere) to go beyond 450 parts per million, and temperatures to shoot past 1.5 degrees."

"That can still be prevented. If we come together on the basis of the emergency facing us, we can do it. Every country at this summit will have hell to pay if we don't."
