Countries agree to submit strategies for reductions of greenhouse gases

About 190 nations agreed on Sunday on the building blocks of a new-style global deal due in 2015 to combat climate change amid warnings that far tougher action will be needed to limit rising world temperatures.

Under the Lima deal, governments will submit national plans for reining in greenhouse gas emissions by an informal deadline of March 31 to form the basis of a global agreement due at a summit in Paris in a year's time.
