Climate and Energy
Workshop on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM)
Progress in Mongolia and the World
The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Environment Conservation Fund, Ministry of Environment and Tourism, organised a workshop on the Joint Crediting Mechanism for government officials in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
At the workshop, the Mongolian government shared the status of the Nationally Determined Contribution preparation and the consideration of JCM as part of it. As shown by the supported solar power plants and energy efficiency projects, the JCM has and will continue to contribute to the energy sector as a major sector in climate change mitigation in Mongolia. Transportation and waste sectors were also mentioned in the workshop as sectors where mitigation efforts need to be enhanced.
Integrated and multi-sector coordination in policy implementation will be at the heart of Mongolian government's endeavour in mitigating and adapting to climatic changes. Continuous consultations with local stakeholders and proper measurement, reporting, and verification processes, guided by the governments, will ensure robust implementation of activities. Through the JCM, the Government of Japan and Mongolia will pursue their cooperative efforts in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and meeting their commitments to the international community.
