The first workshop of the "Mitigation of Climate Change in Developing Countries" research project, which will be officially launched this year, was held recently at JICA-RI and involved all related project members.
The commitment period for the Kyoto Protocol of 1997 will expire in 2012. As the framework for greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction is being discussed worldwide, this study aims to disclose the current status of and possibilities for carbon reduction in developing countries, and seeks the policy measures necessary for implementation. The study will also suggest the direction for international cooperation based on these findings. The research team is comprised of members from Japan's National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and other specialists.

Readers of this book will likely be practitioners in development assistance or those in developing countries. The book will include the processes and overall picture of international negotiations on climate change made up until now, and will suggest what possible assistance would be needed to realize the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) of developing countries -- an important discussion theme for the post-Kyoto Protocol framework. The research team aims to publish the book in conjunction with COP17 to be held next year.
