In his first interview for UN News, Secretary-General António Guterres tells us there needs to be a “surge in diplomacy for peace”, and that global problems need global solutions beyond the capacity of any superpower.

He tells Reem Abaza that climate change is “undeniable” and inextricably linked to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

For this special edition of our podcast “The Lid Is On” the UN chief says he’s serious about gender-parity and empowering the young to change their societies for the better.

He’s also partial to New York’s contemporary art galleries, opera, and of course, his native Portuguese poetry.
