Leveraging Solutions: Smart Policies, Plans, and Actions

The Role of the JCM in Tackling Climate Change in Emerging Economies

Although countries around the world are increasingly taking actions to implement their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and curb emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), various stakeholders such as cities and businesses are looking for innovative ways to promote low-carbon projects. In this respect, explaining how Article 6 of the Paris Agreement and the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) contribute to the realisation of a Climate-Resilient Society is critically important.

This session aims to facilitate a deeper understanding about the role of the JCM in the context of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, as well as how selected countries intend to promote low-carbon investments and technology transfer vis-à-vis climate policy, including but not limited to the JCM.

This session will also offer a venue for addressing technical matters that continue to shape international climate negotiations. Fostering a common understanding among policymakers on the rule book set out by the Paris Agreement is expected to enable the more efficient development of low-carbon projects.
