Radio Taiwan: Green Party to rally Asian countries

Taiwan’s Green Party said Monday that it will call upon other Asian countries to unite to form stronger carbon reduction policies. The request will come during the 2nd Asia-Pacific Greens Network (APGN) meeting to be held in Taiwan next year.

The announcement came from party spokesman Pan Han-shen. Pan said that reduction targets set by developed countries at the recent Climate Summit in Copenhagen have “caused heartbreak among environmentalists.” He then spoke about his party’s goals for the meeting.

“The Asia region is very important,” he said. “China is a huge emitter of Co2, and the many island nations of the Asia-Pacific region are thevictims. We must therefore come together at the APGN meeting to move towards setting and implementing more concrete reduction goals.”
