Central Environment Council
Ministry of the Environment, Japan
The Climate Change Policy Programme (hereinafter referred to as “Programme”) was formulated in 1998 following the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol. It was revised in March 2002, prior to Japan’s ratification of the Kyoto Protocol.
In order to fulfill the 6% reduction commitment of the Kyoto Protocol in the first commitment period of the Protocol which is between 2008 and 2012, while taking into consideration changes in the socio-economic situation and conditions related to the development and diffusion of technology, the Programme adopted a step-by-step approach. The first step refers to the three years between 2002 and 2004, the second step refers to the three years between 2005 and 2007, and the third step refers to the three years between 2008 and 2012 (the first commitment period of the Protocol). The Programme is scheduled for assessment and review in 2004 and also in 2007.
In January 2004, the Central Environment Council started deliberation of the assessment and review of the Programme. The Council has held twelve meetings to review the progress of policies and measures implemented for each sector; conducted hearings of concerned ministries, agencies, and organizations; and reviewed policies and measures for each sector. Following the deliberations, the Central Environment Council put together an interim report to provide a basic direction for the assessment and review of the Programme.
We would like to invite the public to offer their opinions about this Interim Report until 12, October 2004.
