Taiwan and Climate Change

Global Climate Campaign is an international coalition of environmental groups who annually hold an Global Day of Action on Climate. On the Global Day of Action on Climate, people around the world hold events to urge action on climate change.

For the past few years, Taiwanese environmental organizations have participated in Global Climate Campaign, holding marches urging the Taiwanese government to take action against climate change. While Taiwan is not a signatory to the Kyoto Protocol, due to its exclusion from the United Nations, the country has committed to its own set of greehouse gas emissions targets.
