With the prolonged world-wide recessions, efforts for reducing GHG emissions have slowed down even in developed countries. Concerns seem to have shifted to how we adjust our lives to the world with the influence of climate change. Although the global agreements at the COP21 have been reached in 2015 among developed countries and developing countries, many challenges exist to achieve the goals. This research project is organized to understand and discuss the current conditions for global socially, economically and environmentally sustainable development and policy options in the global context and the implications for the United States and Japan.
