Mongolia is feeling the effects of climate change more than most countries, with temperatures rising at twice the rate of the global average.

The country's first commercial solar plant is now supplying the central electricity grid.

Funded by Japan, part of a bilateral emissions reduction programme, it is seen as a big boost to Mongolia's renewable-energy sector.

That is caused a shift from coal to renewables, changing the lives of many nomadic families.
