Seminar abstract

To achieve a decarbonized society, it is essential to promote subnational initiatives. It is also important not only to raise targets in cities, but also to implement effective and continuous actions. In Japan, the national government and local governments have been working together and formulated the Regional Decarbonization Roadmap. Japan also support the decarbonization of overseas cities by sharing experiences and knowledge through international city-to-city cooperation.
This side event aims to contribute to local decarbonization through promoting “decarbonization domino effect” through sharing related initiatives by national governments and subnational governments toward decarbonization at local level and discuss further actions.
