Chiba city Forum for the Prevention of Global Warming

 

Global warming is a serious environmental problem we are facing in the 21st century.

In light of climate change considerations, a number of efforts have been made.   It has drawn the international attention and they have resulted in the ratification of the "Kyoto Protocol" which aims to limit or reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.


Pursuant to the Kyoto Protocol, Japan has made the revisions of Guideline for Measures to Prevent Global Warming and

Law Concerning the Promotion of the Measures to Cope with Global Warming.   Under the new revisions of these policies, Chiba City Regional Council for the Prevention of Global Warming is about to be established, in which citizens, relevant sectors, and governments are to cooperate with each other to enhance the individual and combined effectiveness of these policies.


Chiba City Regional Promotion Project for the Prevention of Global Warming was ratified by Chiba City on March 2004.

In effort to implement and/or further elaborate these policies and measures, Chiba City Regional Council for the Prevention of the Prevention of Global Warming was established on October, 2004.


In this council, encouragement of appropriate actions is specified so that the citizens and relevant sectors shall take
