In preparation for the Copenhagen meeting (COP15) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change at the end of 2009, Japan is currently engaged in debate about the country’s medium-term greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for the period 2013 to 2020. You can make your voice heard.
After considering public opinion and various other views, Prime Minister Taro Aso will decide on the medium-term targets this June. While environmental NGOs are calling for major emission reductions, industry is making a strong appeal for targets that will not lead to big reductions. A large gap in their positions persists.
NGO Japan for Sustainability (JFS) is now asking people around the world for their comments, so that they can share them with Prime Minister Aso and the Japanese media.
