JICA's climate change cooperation strategies focuses on four priority issues as noted below.
Mass transit system in Bangkok (Purple line)
JICA is supporting low-carbon and climate resilient infrastructure, particularly in developing countries with fast growing economies. For example in Thailand, Japan's ODA loans are facilitating modal shift from road to rail.
Disaster risk management project in Indonesia
Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent, thus it is critical to consider climate-related risks in all development cooperation projects. JICA promotes comprehensive risk management through an integrated approach, across various areas including disaster risk management and food and water security.
Climate change measures require long-term commitment, and JICA supports developing countries to develop their capacity to plan, implement, monitor and improve climate actions. In Vietnam, JICA supports a study on low-carbon technology assessment for the implementation of GHG (greenhouse gas) emission reduction measures, as provided in Vietnam's NDC (Nationally Determined Contributions).
Project for establishing and supporting Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) in Vietnam
Plant data collection in Central Amazon
Land use change as well as degradation and loss of forests and other ecosystems account for up to 30% of global cumulative anthropogenic GHG emissions. JICA is promoting sustainable forest management through, for example, strengthening the capacity of community-based forest management.
