Japan’s Contributions to Achieving the SDGs and Climate Change Issues (Briefer: Amb. AKAHORI Takeshi, Assistant Minister for Global Issues of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan)
post date : 2023.09.25
【IMPORTANT】The starting time for tomorrow's press briefing has been changed to 14:30.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals to create a better, sustainable world by 2030 that were adopted unanimously by all member states at the September 2015 United Nations summit.
As 2023 is the midpoint for the SDGs, the Japanese government plans to revise the SDGs Implementation Guiding Principles, a mid-to-long term national strategy for achieving the SDGs.
G7 Hiroshima Summit held in May this year underlined that climate change is an urgent issue that the international community must address as a matter of urgency.
In order to reach net zero by 2050, further action is needed by the world as a whole.
The FPCJ has invited Amb. AKAHORI Takeshi, Assistant Minister for Global Issues of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, to discuss the outcomes of the UN General Assembly High-level Week, including the SDG Summit held at the end of September, the concept of human security as a key to achieving the SDGs, as well as Japan’s climate change diplomacy and its international contributions.
