[Full text]

Japan requests to replace the description on Japan in FCCC/SB/2011/INF.1/Rev.1 with the following:

- Japan announces a target of a 3.8% emission reduction in 2020 compared to the 2005 level.

- This is a target at this point, which has not yet taken into account the emission reduction effect resulting from nuclear power, given that the energy policy and energy mix, including the utilization of nuclear power, are still under consideration.

- A firm target, based on further review of the energy policy and energy mix will eventually be set.

Additional information relevant to the target will be forthcoming.
