Presentation of awards for 'Asia's Nobels' Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying will present the Shaw Prize awards - known as Asia's Nobels - at the Convention and Exhibition Centre tonight.

The awards were created in 2002 by Hong Kong film tycoon Run Run Shaw. Key projections on climate change The UN's panel of climate scientists are set to release a report pointing to the dizzying challenge of meeting targets over global warming. At a meeting in Stockholm, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will publish its projections for warming by 2100.

Climate science has made many advances since then, but analysts say the report is not likely to rattle US deniers of global warming who hold sway in the halls of power.
