World leaders opened an historic summit in the French capital on Monday aimed at ending decades of political gridlock and forging an elusive agreement to avert calamitous global warming.

The leaders kicked off 12 days of negotiations in search of a pact that would radically restructure the global economy away from its dependancy on fossil fuels that are blamed for climate change.

More than 150 leaders gathered at a sprawling conference centre on the northern outskirts of Paris under heavy security following this month`s terror attacks in the city, which appeared to have galvanised commitment for climate action.
