AbstractClimate Change is becoming an increasingly important environmental issue
these days. During the past ten years, Tokyo Metropolitan Government(TMG)
has developed a proactive climate policy and have led to similar policies in
other local governments, as well as the Japanese government. This paper
attempts to deal with the research question directed at the roles of TMG and
other actors in policy-making process of a specific policy field: What roles had
TMG and other stakeholders played in solar thermal policy making process to
revitalize stagnating Japanese market? Three data collection methods were used
for this research such as document survey, participant observation and
interviews. This study clarified the important roles of TMG and other
stakeholders in solar thermal policy-making process. It is worth noting that
TMG and several actors had strongly promoted its solar thermal policy without
adequate support from national government. This study will shed further light
on the role of TMG in Japanese climate policy with respect to multi-level
governance.
