Preliminary Selection Result for Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects in FY2021 (1st Selection)

   Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) as an implementing organization for the Financing Programme for Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) Model Projects in FY2021, has been solicited proposals for the financing programme and is announcing the 1st selection of 11 projects.


Purpose of Programme

Japan establishes and implements the Joint Crediting Mechanism (hereinafter referred to as “the JCM”) in order both to appropriately evaluate contributions from Japan and to greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions or removals in a quantitative manner achieved through the diffusion of decarbonizing technologies, products, systems, services, and infrastructure as well as implementation of mitigation actions in developing countries.

Starting from Mongolia in January 2013, Japan has established the JCM with 17 partner countries (Mongolia, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Maldives, Viet Nam, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Palau, Cambodia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Chile, Myanmar, Thailand and Philippines) at this moment.

In order to support the implementation of candidate JCM projects, Ministry of the Environment, Japan (hereinafter referred to as “MOEJ”) has been implementing the “JCM Model Projects (hereinafter referred to as “model project”),” which includes collaboration with projects supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and government-affiliated financial institutions.

The purpose of this model project is to financially support the implementation of projects which reduce GHG emissions by utilizing leading decarbonizing technologies in developing countries, and in return seeks to acquire JCM credits for achievement of Japan’s GHG emission reduction target. Moreover, along with the Overseas Development Strategy (Environment) compiled by Cabinet Office in June 2018 and Infrastructure System Overseas Development Strategy 2025 formulated in December 2020, the JCM model projects aim to contribute to global GHG emission reductions, through the diffusion of leading decarbonizing technologies.
