Leaders from all the world’s major religions are set to declare their backing for ambitious climate action at an event in New York on Monday.

The Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Pakistani grand imam Maulana Khabir Azad are among 270 signatories of an interfaith statement.

Emphasising each person’s “moral responsibility” to care for our shared Earth, the statement will be handed over to the UN’s Mogens Lykketoft in a ceremony at 11:00 Eastern Time.

It comes ahead of a gathering of national leaders on Friday to sign the landmark climate pact agreed in Paris – a necessary step towards its entry into force.
