Opening Remarks

  • Toshihiko Fukui
    (President, The Canon Institute for Global Studies)

Keynote Speeches

  • Latest research results on climate projections and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission scenarios for low carbon societies will be reported. Future possibilities for GHG reduction and long-term energy supply and demand in countries and regions will be introduced. Proposals for future international cooperation systems to address global warming will be discussed.
