This brochure of the Japan-France Collaboration on Climate Change and Long-Term Low Carbon Strategies gives an overview of the activities undertaken in 2017-2018 under the Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ) and the French Ministry of Ecological and Social Transition (METS).

Signed by both Ministers for the environment at the Japan Pavilion of the COP 21 in Paris in December 2015, the collaboration involves a joint research on scenario modelling for the development and implementation of long-term low-carbon strategies. As a reference, the brochure provides a short summary of the main French and Japanese climate change policies. It also shows the events that already took place under this collaboration, such as annual intergovernmental workshops and expert meetings by contributing organizations and research institutes from both countries.

The brochure is available in English and Japanese.
