{{#badges: Climate change}}The Joint Implementation Supervisory Committee is a body created under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol to supervise "the verification procedure" relating to Joint Implementation.[1]

Under Joint Implementation a developed country can be allocated "emissions reduction units" for financing projects that are deemed to result in a net reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions in another developed country. However, the UNFCCC states that "in practice, the recipient state is likely to be a country with an "economy in transition" and that an "Annex I Party must meet specific eligibility requirements to participate in joint implementation."[2]
