BOAO, China (Reuters) - 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 globalization had helped reduce poverty, vast numbers of people had been left behind and he wanted a fairer outcome.
