COP21: Malawi requests funds to battle climate change
24 November 2015 Last updated at 12:49 GMT
Malawi is one of the world's poorest countries, where the majority of people have no electricity.
In spite of its lack of wealth, the African nation has promised to join the battle against climate change, but on the condition that richer countries provide the necessary funding.
The UN Climate Change Conference is due to begin in Paris next week.
