This Dialogue is the materialization of the East Asia Low Carbon Growth Partnership Initiative which was proposed by Japan in the EAS last year as part of Japan's Vision and Actions toward Low-Carbon Growth and a Climate-Resilient World. In order to address climate change effectively, it is important to promote cooperation toward low carbon growth in the EAS region which is the growth center of the world economy and the area with the largest greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

In this Dialogue, participants will discuss: (1) Actions toward low carbon growth in each of the EAS countries, (2) Establishing a market mechanism to spread low carbon growth technologies, (3) Future cooperation in the EAS region in this field.
