Academic Session 1

Environment

East Asian countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea have been significantly contributing to greenhouse gas emissions due to their rapid economic growth during the last few decades. To deal with the aftermaths of their industrial
developments, each government has introduced several strategies. By discussing the differences and similarities in their approaches, this academic session will focus on seeking new ways forward for greater inter- and intra-regional cooperation
on emission reduction.

Goals


• To understand how each country has contributed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions;
• To discuss dynamics of interregional cooperation and tensions among East Asian countries on mitigating climate change and reducing emissions.
