U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Tuesday that countries need to rise to the challenge of climate change

Guterres, speaking at the Chinese Boao Forum for Asia on Hainan island, said that while globalisation had helped reduce poverty, vast numbers of people had been left behind and he wanted a fairer outcome.
