A conference of 193 countries agreed on Saturday to "take note" of a new Copenhagen Accord to fight global climate change, after two weeks of U.N. talks in the Danish capital.

The accord was not legally binding, and did not commit countries ever to agree a binding successor to the Kyoto Protocol, whose present round ends in 2012.In addition, countries were invited to sign up to the accord, meaning it did not guarantee global participation.

Following is a summary of the decisions in the Copenhagen Accord, and other decisions adopted at the U.N. summit.
