KATOWICE, Poland (Reuters) - Nearly 200 nations agreed on Saturday on a rulebook for implementing a landmark 2015 global deal to tackle climate change.

After two weeks of talks and two years of work, nations overcame political divisions to reach consensus on a more detailed framework for the 2015 Paris Agreement which aims to limit a rise in average world temperatures to "well below" two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial times.
