Copenhagen: What's your question?

If you had the microphone at the Copenhagen climate summit, what would you say?

BBC News would like you to send us your questions for world leaders.

The best questions we receive will be addressed directly to a panel of leaders in Copenhagen, in a special edition of the World Debate.

Do you have a question for our panel? Send it to us.

Last chance

The UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, is now underway. Some say it is our last chance to save the world from runaway climate change.

It is hoped that world leaders will agree:

- Targets to curb greenhouse gas emissions, in particular by developed countries

- Financial support for mitigation of and adaptation to climate change by developing countries

- A carbon trading scheme aimed at ending the destruction of the world's forests

But so far developed and developing nations appear to be far apart in their demands. There are fears that a global deal may be impossible to agree.

What is your question for the politicians at Copenhagen? What would you ask them if you were at the summit? How does climate change affect your country? What do you think of the proposals to stop it? Send us your questions for world leaders.

Thank you for your contributions.
