Race to save the rainforests in Asia-Pacific

Environmentalists and politicians are joining forces to try to save fragile rainforests in the Asia-Pacific region.

A summit is being held in Indonesia, where delegates from all over the region will try and build on the commitments made in the Paris Climate Agreement.

On the agenda will be the rapid rate of deforestation in Papua New Guinea.

Intensive logging is continuing there, despite a court ruling to stop many operations.
