Delegates at the UN Climate Summit in South African port city of Durban have finally reached a deal that aims to extend the 1997 Kyoto Protocol by five more years and launch talks towards a successor treaty.

The new treaty will have binding agreement for developed and developing nations to curb their carbon emissions, and it came with heavy compromises.

Negotiations went on for extra two days to try to get the world’s biggest polluters to commit to a plan to cut carbon emissions.

Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from the venue of the conference.
