Japan and USA Policy Dialogue on Climate Adaptation (From 2012-2014)

Along with ICLEI USA, ICLEI Japan implemented information exchange for local governments in promoting climate change adaptation policies, in order to collect and organize useful information and policy-making tools for local climate change adaptation policies, and verify their applications with participating local governments.

Furthermore, representatives from local governments, research institutes and other experts from both Japan and the United States participated in a workshop in order to share knowledge and exchange opinions regarding specific case studies on local climate change adaptation measures and the problems with their implementation. The participants included the Edogawa, Itabashi and Sumida Wards in the Tokyo Metropolitan area from Japan, and the cities of San Diego and Philadelphia from the United States.
