Japan Fund for the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JFJCM)

The JFJCM seeks to increase the sustainability of ADB-financed and administered projects through the use of advanced low carbon technologies. The use of grants under the JFJCM will demonstrate the effectiveness of the JCM and provide a source of additional funding to eligible ADB developing member countries (DMCs). The JFJCM will also offer the opportunity for recipients to engage in projects with strong development characteristics and long-term climate-change mitigation benefits. The Japan Fund for the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JFJCM) is a single-donor trust fund established in 2014 and managed by ADB. The fund aims to provide financial incentives for the adoption of advanced low carbon technologies in ADB-financed and administered sovereign and non-sovereign projects. The JFJCM will provide grants and technical assistance to ADB projects utilizing the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM).
