Temperate part of the world (9)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
This clue might be a double definition.
'temperate' is the first definition.
'part of the world' is the second definition.
'continent' can be an answer for 'world' (thesaurus). I am not sure about the 'part of the' bit.
(Other definitions for continent that I've seen before include "global sector", "Monk vows", "Landmass", "Large landmass", "dry?", "Great landmass", "huge area of land", "Africa, say", "Exercising self-restraint" and "Temperate - land mass".)
