All the key moments as they happen as hundreds of world leaders address the UN Climate Summit.

It's here. The COP27 UN Climate Summit kicked off on Sunday as the UK officially handed over the reins to Egypt which will now oversee the next fortnight of crucial climate geopolitical negotiations at the Red Sea coastal resort of Sharm El Sheikh.

Around 120 world leaders including the UK's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Canada's President Justin Trudeau are all expected to make speeches over the next two days, while US President Joe Biden and Brazil's President-elect Lula are also expected to make appearances at Sharm El Sheikh later this week.

With hopes of a raft of fresh national climate commitments expected from world leaders over the next two days, Investment Week's sister publication BusinessGreen has you covered with all the latest updates from the World Leaders Summit at COP27 through our liveblog below.
