Japan Adopts Strategy to Achieve Paris Climate Goals

Japan Adopts Strategy to Achieve Paris Climate Goals

   Tokyo, June 11 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government, at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday, adopted a long-term strategy to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in order to help achieve climate goals under the 2015 Paris agreement.
   The move came as signatory countries to the Paris accord are supposed to submit such strategies to the United Nations by 2020.
   The Paris agreement calls for keeping the average temperature in the world from rising 2 degrees Celsius or more from the pre-Industrial Revolution level.
   The Japanese government plans to present its strategy at a Group of 20 meeting on energy and environmental issues to be held in Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, central Japan, for two days from Saturday.
   The government is expected to then submit the strategy to the United Nations, before the summit of G-20 leaders in the western city of Osaka on June 28-29.
