How the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) can contribute to NDCs implementation and SDG achievement

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement on cooperative approaches offers opportunities for Parties to voluntarily cooperate to promote NDC implementation, sustainable development and environmental integrity.

The Joint Crediting Mechanism, implemented under bilateral cooperation between Japan and partner countries, defines its objective as to promote diffusion of leading low- or zero-carbon technologies, to implement mitigation actions and to contribute to sustainable development.
