In East Asia more than 8 countries were able to join the Global Divestment Mobilisation showing the broadness and diversity of the growing fossil-free movement in a critical region that includes both the investors and the dirty energy facilities that induces further warming while harming the health and livelihood of communities.
Global Divestment Mobilisation Kicking Off! Say No To Fossil Fuel
The problem of Japan’s coal finance is two-fold. First, the Paris Agreement, to which Japan is a signatory, directs signatory countries to make efforts to keep global warming under 2 degrees Celsius. Reaching this goal means no new fossil fuel projects can be built. Second, coal combustion produces a great amount of pollutants, and the expansion of coal plants is doing more harm than good for those most most in need. This is not in line with the principles of overseas development assistance.
