United Nations climate change boss Christiana Figueres cried when she thanked religious organisations for their contribution to fighting climate change.

“We have heard your voice and your prayers. Don’t give up, continue with your prayers,” she said with tears in her eyes.

An emotional Figueres was addressing scores of people from different religious organisations at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
