A vision for leadership by industrialized nations - climate change at the G8 Summit 2008 in Japan

Posted on 28 June 2008  | 
The G8 industrialized countries have an unprecedented responsibility in tackling climate change, and a global role to play in shaping the way forward. WWF position on what the G8 Summit in Japan ought to achieve on climate change policy.

The G8 summit in Japan builds on a process that started in Gleneagles in 2005 and continued through to Heiligendamm in 2007. Though not revolutionary in their outcomes, those two summits succeeded in advancing the debate. What governments bring to the table in preparation for the Toyako summit must be a step forward, not backward.
