The Japan Center for a Sustainable Environment and Society (JACSES) is an NGO dedicated to achieving sustainable development and social justice in the society. It broadly engages the general public and experts in research, policy advocacy, and awareness-raising to promote social and environmental justice in Japan and beyond. JACSES' activities are centered around the Sustainable Development and Aid Program (SDAP), which is aimed at improving Japanese government's development aid projects in developing countries; the Green Tax Reform, which advocates the introduction of fiscal instruments (such as carbon taxes and emission trading schemes) to address environmental problems, as well as the integration of environmental concerns into economic activities; and climate change, which advocates a comprehensive approach to climate policy reforms.
