    Despite Donald Trump's opposition, world leaders in Bonn have agreed to continue forward with the Paris Agreement on climate change, but activists were disappointed that greater action was not taken.

    UN climate talks in the German city of Bonn have ended with nearly 200 nations agreeing to keep the Paris Agreement on track, despite the US withdrawal.

    And to make sure they keep their commitment, delegates agreed to start a process to review and ramp up their efforts to cut carbon, but activists worry that it still is not enough.

    Al Jazeera's Nick Clark reports from Bonn, Germany.
