The global economy is expected to continue growing at a steady pace of around 3 percent in 2019 and 2020 but there are signs the expansion has peaked, according to the UN's annual report on the world economic situation and prospects.
Economic growth is uneven and is often failing to reach where it is most needed, said the report released by the UN department of economic and social affairs.
On climate, Harris said the transition to sustainable economies was "not happening fast enough" and stressed the need to "de-link economic growth from economic degradation."
