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

The Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) in collaboration with the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs and the JCM secretariat Indonesia will jointly organize “Seminar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM*1) Implementation in Indonesia” on 24 July 2018 at Le Meridien Jakarta, Indonesia.

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).”

In order 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 Indonesia has the largest number of model projects being implemented among those partner counties. The seminar is 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.
