Abstract: The Ramsar Convention adopted in 1971 is an international treaty on environmental protection which has such a long history that it is said to be a model of global environmental agreements. Although the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in 1972 requested all the countries to contract the Ramsar Convention, however, Japan maintained a passive reaction concerning it in early 1970s, to become a party in 1980. Moreover, although the Ramsar Convention demands each contracting party to designate suitable wetlands of international importance within its territory, it can be seen that the reaction was very slow, as the number of wetlands Japan designated has been that of only three sites, 10 years after the accession of the convention. Since the late 1980s, the Japanese government has increased the number of designated wetlands and has activated the implementation of the Ramsar Convention, such as hosting the conference of the parties in Japan. This report examines the characteristics of the Japanese global environmental policy by analyzing chronologically the process of Japanese accession to the Ramsar Convention and its implementation.
