Japan establishes and implements the JCM in order both to appropriately evaluate contributions from Japan to GHG emission reductions or removals in a quantitative manner achieved through the diffusion of low carbon technologies, products, systems, services, and infrastructure as well as implementation of mitigation actions in developing countries, and to use them to achieve Japan's emission reduction target. As of July 2016, Japan has started the JCM with 16 partner countries (Mongolia, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Maldives, Viet Nam, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Palau, Cambodia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Chile and Myanmar and Thailand). In addition, the Philippines and Japan signed an aide memoire with intent to establish the JCM.
The rules and guidelines adopted under the Joint Committee established by Japan and each partner country as well as up-to-date information on methodologies and projects are uploaded on the JCM website.
