The Fast and the Furriest: inside the world of dog agility


You've seen them on TV - the dogs who run, jump, balance and zig-zag on specially designed obstacle courses in the ultra-competitive sport of dog agility. We meet the dedicated handlers looking for major honours at the world famous Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York - and the dogs who have to perform on the big day

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of our societies and economies to global shocks, such as disease or climate disruption.
As we recover, we must build back better for people and the planet.
We have the guides and tools we need -- the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Governments have pledged to present, within a year, new nationally determined contributions and long-term strategies to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
This commitment must be maintained.
And the main economies, the G20 countries, must lead by example.
I have proposed six climate-positive actions for building back:
Invest in green jobs.
Do not bail out polluting industries.
End fossil-fuel subsidies.
Take climate risks into account in all financial and policy decisions.
Work together.
And, most important, leave no one behind.
Together, we can improve health, reduce inequalities and re-energize struggling economies.
Like the coronavirus, greenhouse gases respect no boundaries.
Isolation is not a solution.
No country can succeed alone.
