Through the IKI, Germany is involved in numerous global initiatives and funds for climate protection and biodiversity conservation. Here is an overview of the most important partnerships supported by the IKI:
The German and Moroccan governments have initiated the global “NDC Partnership” with the aim of promoting the implementation of NDCs in emerging and developing countries to meet the development goals of the 2030 Agenda. The Partnership was founded at the UNFCCC COP 22 in Marrakesh, Morocco in 2016.
The goal of the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group (NACAG) is to create incentives for the permanent reduction of nitrous oxide emissions. It achieves this by providing both technical and political support: the initiative advises governments on the long-term regulation of these emissions and helps integrate the sector into Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
The Bonn Challenge is a comprehensive initiative for global reforestation. Founded in Bonn, Germany in September 2011, it aims to restore 150 million hectares of degraded and deforested land by 2020 and at least 350 million hectares by 2030.
The Adaptation Fund supports population groups and regions that are particularly affected by the consequences of climate change to better prepare themselves. Among other things, it finances early warning systems against flooding and heavy rainfall, measures to secure the water supply and the conversion to drought-resistant cultivation methods in agriculture.
The NAMA Facility is a strong agent against climate change and empowerment of its partner countries. The successful mitigation tool based on the idea of NAMAs (Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions) is helping developing countries worldwide to fulfil Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement.
New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF)
The NYDF was launched at the UN Climate Summit in 2014. It is a voluntary and non-binding declaration to counteract global forest loss with ten ambitious goals. By September 2019, the list of supporters had grown to over 200, including national and sub-national governments, multinational corporations, indigenous communities and non-governmental organisations.
