February 1, 2021

 On February 1, 2021, the Ministry of the Environment, Japan is pleased to announce that 3 projects were selected in the fifth selection of the proposals for the Financing Programme for the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) Model Projects in FY2020. The greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions through the JCM model projects are expected to accumulate to around 17.9million tons by 2030.

 This time, MOEJ has selected three projects to introduce renewable energy such as mini hydro power and solar power generation. MOEJ continues to contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society by promoting the JCM.

1.Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects

 This programme provides up to 1/2 of the initial cost of a project to be implemented in developing countries which utilizes leading low carbon or decarbonizing technologies and conducts measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of GHG emission reductions.

 The purpose of this programme is to reduce GHG emissions in developing countries as well as to achieve the GHG emission reduction target by the Japanese government through the JCM. Moreover, based on the Overseas Development Strategy (Environment) compiled by the Cabinet Office in June 2018, the programme aims to promote overseas development of infrastructure through the diffusion of leading low carbon or decarbonizing technologies.
