Please note that the JCM Model Project is the budgetary support from the government of Japan and it is our understanding that the projects selected for the Model Project are not a “JCM project” per se at the moment.
The project participants of the selected Model Project need to go through the official JCM procedures including, for example, methodology development, validation and request for registration to the Joint Committee of JCM, where both side will discuss and consider all the matters relating to the implementation of the JCM.
After these processes, the selected Model Project will be registered as the “JCM project” based on the decision of the Joint Committee.
