The Cartagena Dialogue climate talks have wrapped up in Majuro, with optimism that world leaders will work together towards new climate objectives in lieu of the UN Climate Summit in New York this September.

Editor of the Marshall Islands Journal Giff Johnson says this in-person contact has been key to changing attitudes to climate change.
