CITYNET Partner IGES Event: Beyond Global Warming

Join CITYNET Partner IGES on February 18th, 2013 for
Beyond global warming: World trends and Japan’s policies on low-carbon societies.

In response to the nuclear accident at Fukushima, it is time to re-consider Japan?€™s policy to combat global warming. Meanwhile, under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), discussions are on-going towards developing a framework for climate stabilisation in which all nations of the world should participate from 2020. Furthermore, each country is being engaged in greenhouse gas reduction policies respectively in a proactive manner.

The International Research Network for Low Carbon Societies (LCS-RNet), begun by a Japanese initiative, has recently launched a special issue of the Climate Policy journal, which shows directions and ways forward on how to achieve a low-carbon society, and includes a comparison of low-carbon policies in each country. In this regard, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), which serves as the Secretariat for LCS-RNet, will provide an opportunity to discuss Japan?€™s low-carbon, green growth policies with IGES affiliate members and others who are interested in these themes, based on the report in the Climate Policy journal.
