INTRODUCTION

FoE Japan and Kiko Network hosted the "International Conference on Long-term Prospect of International Climate Change Policy" which took place on 20-21 February 2004 in central Tokyo. Although it has not yet entered into force, the Kyoto Protocol has already been influencing domestic climate and energy policies in many countries. The Protocol stipulates 2005 as the year to review the progress that has been achieved so far and to commence the intergovernmental negotiation to determine the targets for the subsequent commitment periods. Prominent advisory councils for two ministries of Japan are slated to present their deliberations on Japan's views about the possible second commitment period target later this year. The first day of this two-day conference reviewed the UNFCCC process and the latest climate science as well as in-depth analyses of different post-2012 regimes that had been proposed to date. Environmental community's view on the future targets was also presented. The second day focused on the current status and challenges of policy implementation in key industrial countries. The conference was intended to provide vital information for policymakers, experts and the general public in considering such long-term aspects of international policies from various viewpoints.
