As governments around the world ramp up action to address the climate crisis, there’s one government that continues to stand in the way: Japan.
Japan is blocking efforts to negotiate a climate commitment at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The little known OECD Development Assistance Committee helps set international standards and principles for financial aid for low-income countries. This aid should prioritize renewable energy and not dirty fossil fuel projects. But Japan is prioritizing the corporate interests of the fossil fuel industry over our climate and health.
Take action now and tell Japan to stop blocking climate action.
