The presentation materials will be posted on this page.
Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) in collaboration with Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Thailand (MONRE) and Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) will jointly organize “Webinar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM*1) Implementation in Thailand – Utilizing the JCM during the COVID-19 Period -” on 25 August 2020, Tuesday.
Government of Japan is promoting dissemination of advanced low carbon or zero emission technologies through the Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects*2. The webinar 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.
In addition, due to the impact of the COVID-19, a “new normal” such as digitization is required. In this webinar, we will introduce examples of digitization and countermeasures against the COVID-19 in the JCM Model Projects, and consider utilizing JCM in a new period.
After the webinar, individual meetings will be arranged online between the companies that are considering implementing low carbon or zero emission technologies as JCM Model Projects, and the companies that can provide relevant technologies. Also, individual consultation by TGO and GEC will be set up online for companies who would like to ask questions related to Financing Programme for JCM.

※１ The seminar and the business matching need to be registered separately.
※２ JCM stands for the Joint Crediting Mechanism, and it is a bilateral cooperation mechanism that developing countries and Japan collaborate
on GHG emission reductions projects and share the reduction result.
For further information, please refer to the official website of JCM here
※３ In order to support the implementation of candidate JCM projects, Ministry of the Environment, Japan has launched the “JCM Model Projects”.
The purpose of this model project is to financially support the implementation of projects which reduce GHG emissions by utilizing leading
low carbon technologies in developing countries, and in return seeks to acquire JCM credits for achievement of Japan’s GHG emission reduction target.
