MOEJ and GEC host Seminar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) Implementation in Thailand

*Updated on 16 August:  Venue, speakers, agenda, business matching, etc. have been updated
 
The Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) in collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Thailand and Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) will jointly organize “Seminar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM*1) Implementation in Thailand” on 11 September 2018 in Bangkok.
 
Government of Japan is promoting the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM), and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at COP21 announced, ”Japan will, while lowering burdens of those countries, promote diffusion of advanced low carbon technologies particularly through implementation of the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM).”
 
To support the implementation of candidate JCM projects, MOEJ has established the Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects*2 to disseminate leading low carbon technologies. So far Japanese government has established JCM with 17 countries, and Thailand has been implementing 26 model projects (as of June 2018), which is the second largest number among those partner countries. The seminar will be participated by government officials and business leaders from both countries, and it aims at sharing overview and progress of JCM and facilitating project development and scaling up those future projects.
