The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) jointly organized the “Training workshop for Third Party Entity under the Joint Crediting Mechanism” in Thailand on 5 September 2019.
The aim of the training workshop was to improve capacity building of local Third Party Entities (TPEs) in Thailand under the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) program. The Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) shared the latest updates on JCM projects in Thailand. IGES introduced the difference between the JCM and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) programs, and the JCM rule procedures for verification and validation processes. In addition, key points of the JCM methodology were explained to the local TPEs in order to deepen their knowledge of technology criteria, monitoring parameters, and additional requirements on the JCM projects. Lastly, the TPEs worked on several examples of project design documents, monitoring plans, and monitoring reports as a verification and validation exercise. Participants from the private sector and government agencies engaged in enthusiastic discussions on future possible opportunities for verification and validation under the JCM program. As demonstrated through the workshop, the JCM program has contributed to build capacity of both the public and private sector in implementing low-carbon technology projects.
