Regional: Supporting the Adoption of Low-Carbon Technologies in Developing Member Countries

Sovereign (Public) Project | 49157-001 Status: Closed

The TA will build on the capacity building support provided under the ongoing RETA 8654: Technical Assistance for Supporting the Use of Carbon Financing from New Carbon Market Mechanisms to Promote Green Growth in Asia and the Pacific . The TA will focus more on hands-on support of technology-related criteria and integrating technology aspects of the JCM methodology and the preparation of project proposals for JFJCM funding. The TA will also coordinate with Government of Japan and Joint Committee (JC) members of the JCM in participating and preparing DMCs to provide updates on the implementation of the JCM.
