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).
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.
Japan for Sustainability (JFS) would like to ask people around the world for their comments, and then share their findings with Prime Minister Aso and the Japanese media.
If you wish to fulfil the survey, please visit http://app.formassembly.com/forms/view/86582 and reply by 16 May, 2009. If you have any questions about this survey, please write to [email protected].
JFS will post the findings on their website at the end of May.
