IKI funding instrument: “[The] International Climate Initiative (IKI) is one of the most important instruments of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) for the international financing of climate change mitigation and biodiversity. IKI operates within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), financing climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation in developing, emerging and transition countries. Since 2008 to 2019, IKI approved more than 730 climate and biodiversity projects with a total funding volume of EUR 3.9 billion in more than 60 countries.” […]
Besides larger projects, IKI Small and Medium Grants is a funding instrument focusing on small-scale projects. IKI Small Grants aims at non-governmental and non-profit organisations in developing and emerging countries, as well as national funding institutions. In contrast, IKI Medium Grants intend to support non-governmental and other non-profit organisations based in Germany to realise projects in developing and emerging countries.
