MOEJ and GEC host Seminar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) Implementation in Vietnam 2019


Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) in collaboration with Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam (MONRE) and Institute for Global Environbmental Strategies (IGES) will jointly organize “Seminar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM*1) Implementation in Vietnam” on Thursday, 10 October 2019 at Saigon Prince Hotel in Ho Chi Minh.

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. 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.

We would appreciate your participation.
