This paper is a summary of the final report of the project which Kiko Network, a Japanese environmental NGO, has been promoting in order to propose domestic climate change policies which work towards meeting Japan’s 6% greenhouse gas reduction target between the years 2008-2012 as agreed under the Kyoto Protocol. The proposal which is an alternative to the government policy, takes into consideration political and economic acceptability and sets forth policies and measures that can immediately be put into practice. If the policies and measures outlined in this proposal are immediately implemented, the 6% reduction target by 2010 can easily be met at home without relying on “sinks” or the “Kyoto Mechanisms”. Through this proposal, a new climate change policy will be implemented and a 6% reduction will be realized, and it will be the first step towards a sustainable society.
