In order to promote sustainable development in Taiwan and to proactively contribute to the global efforts towards climate change mitigation, the Environmental Protection Administration R.O.C. Taiwan (EPA) has drafted the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Bill in 2006 to establish a legal framework to manage greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Taiwan.
The Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Management Act was passed by Taiwan’s parliament (the Legislative Yuan) on June 15th 2015 and was promulgated on July 1st 2015. This marks a milestone in Taiwan’s effort to curb CO2 emission and contribute to the combat against climate change. It’s the first law that sets the legal foundation for domestic measures to mitigate and adapt climate change.
The aims of this site are two-fold. Firstly, it provides access to English speakers with regards to the information concerning the legal instruments and other measures implemented that contribute to Taiwan’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emission. Moreover, this site aims to help foster information exchange with different entities and thus develop potentials for future communication and cooperation regarding climate change mitigation.
