What the G7 means for the UN climate talks in Bonn – Webcast Media Briefing
7 June 2015
For the first time this year, all countries are expected to put forward climate action plans to the Paris agreement. In today's briefing, CAN will present the findings of a new report which shows that Japan's weak draft plan will see the country accrue far fewer benefits including the creation jobs in renewable energy, improved public health and money saved from avoided fossil fuel imports – than if the government scaled up the plan in line with a 100% renewable energy pathway.
