The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) organised a workshop on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) on 9 September 2019 in Cambodia.
The workshop aimed to promote further dissemination of low carbon technologies in Cambodia through the JCM. This included sharing of updated information on the JCM financing scheme, experiences with the projects, and contributions to the achievement of the NDC and SDGs through the JCM. IGES researchers made presentations titled “Update on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) and Financing Programme”, “The JCM Contribution to NDCs in the Energy-Related Sector”, and “Contribution to SDGs by the JCM in Cambodia”. The participants from the General Secretariat of National Council for Sustainable Development presented the current progress of financed projects, and SDGs-related-activities and actions in Cambodia. As a private sector delegate from Japan, Metawater made a presentation about a selected JCM model project in Cambodia – the introduction of inverters for distribution pumps in a water treatment plant. They also shared their knowledge gained through project implementation. Around 45 participants representing the government and private sector attended the workshop and were actively involved in discussions about further development of the JCM in Cambodia.
