COP12 & COP/MOP2 Side Event: Global Challenges Toward a Low-Carbon Society (LCS) Through Sustainable Development (SD)

October 26, 2006

The National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES), with the cooperation of the Ministry of the Environment (Japan) and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (United Kingdom) will hold a side event entitled "Global Challenges Toward a Low-Carbon Society (LCS) Through Sustainable Development (SD)" at the twelfth session of the Conference of the Parties to the Climate Change Convention (COP12) and the second meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP/MOP2) which will be held from November 6 to 17 in Nairobi, Kenya.

In order to realize a low-carbon society, we have to devise measures that can be implemented in both developed and developing countries. This event will include presentations and a panel discussion by participants from various countries, including China and the United Kingdom. We will focus our discussion on the results of the joint Japan-UK workshop on developing visions for a low-carbon society that was held in June 2006 in Tokyo.
