NEW DELHI (AP) - Four Himalayan nations facing the threat of weather changes have agreed to collaborate on ways to adapt to climate change. The deal was struck at a summit in Bhutan.

India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan were part of the Climate Summit for a Living Himalayas held in Bhutan’s capital Thimphu on Saturday. They agreed to cooperate on energy, water, food and biodiversity issues.

Pakistan, China and Afghanistan were absent from the summit but organizers downplayed that, saying that the summit was focused on securing ecosystems, endangered species,and food and water sources for only the Himalayas’ eastern part.

The summit called for action amid the international community’s inability to agree on limiting greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global climate change.
