“Energy and Sustainable Development” Kiyotaka AKASAKA Consul-General of Japan in Sao Paulo JICA / ABJICA Forum on Energy at Japan Foundation February 20, 2003
The Johannesburg Summit (Rio+10) from 2 to 4 September 2002 - The Political Declaration - The Plan of Implementation Poverty eradication Changing unsustainable patterns of consumption and production (Energy, Transport, Waste, Chemicals) Protecting and managing the natural base of economic and social development (Water, sanitation, Oceans, Disaster, Climate, Agriculture, Desertification, Mountain, Tourism, Biodiversity, Forests, Mining) Health and sustainable Development
WEHAB WaterHalve, by 2015, the proportion of people who are unable to reach or to afford safe drinking water EnergyImprove access to reliable, affordable energy services and resources HealthReduce infant and child mortality rates; reduce maternal mortality ratios; halt the spread of HIV/AIDS AgricultureHalve, by 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger BiodiversityAchieve, by 2010, a significant reduction in the current rate of loss of biological diversity
Energy issues at the Johannesburg Summit 1. Access to energy (poverty eradication) 2. Increase in the use of renewable energy 3. Kyoto Protocol (climate change)
Key Statistics about Energy About 2.5 billion people lack access to modern energy services. World energy consumption is expected to grow at the rate of 2% a year until 2020. In South and Southeast Asia, about 2 billion people use wood or other biomass for energy. Global consumption of fossil fuels increased by 10% from 1992 to 1999. Fossil fuels provide about 80% of total global energy production and consumption. CO2s from the burning of fossil fuels account for 75% of greenhouse gas emissions.
The Summit agreed to take action to: Improve access to reliable, affordable, economically viable, socially acceptable and environmentally sound energy services and resources. Improve access to modern biomass technologies and fuelwood sources and supplies. Develop national energy policies and regulatory framework. Assist, with the financial and technical assistance, the access of the poor to reliable, affordable … energy services.
Japan’s Energy Literacy Initiative to promote energy education and to improve people’s understanding on energy efficiency and recycling Energy-related programme for children Energy-related courses for adults Dispatch of energy experts Development of an international network Partners include Japan, UK, Australia, Republic of Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, World Bank, UNEP and UNDP
Renewable energy EU Proposal: EU Proposal: industrialized countries should increase the share of renewables by at least 2% by 2010, to achieve the global share of 15% by 2010. Brazil’s Proposal: Brazil’s Proposal: increase the share of renewables to 10% of total energy use in all countries by 2010. The share of renewable energy sources (1999) World total13.9% Developed countries 6.2% Developing countries23.0%

Plan of Implementation Plan of Implementation Final agreement on renewable energy “With a sense of urgency, substantially increase the global share of renewable energy sources with the objective of increasing its contribution to total energy supply, recognizing the role of national and voluntary regional targets as well as initiatives, where they exist, ….”
