IKI funding instrument

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.

The partner countries are supported with IKI funding to help them implement and ambitiously develop their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) anchored in the Paris Agreement. The NDCs include measures to adapt to the impacts of climate change and increase resilience to its unavoidable impacts. In the field of biodiversity, IKI supports partner countries in achieving the goals of the CBD to counteract the dramatic global loss of natural resources. The activities of IKI also contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Projects that are implemented in one of the following four funding areas are eligible for support:

Selection with idea competitions

IKI supports through two funding pillars: the thematic and the country-specific selection procedures. Both procedures use idea competitions to select innovative projects. This approach ensures that the best ideas and concepts will be implemented and that the diversity of the implementing partners grows.

Large IKI projects

In addition to selecting projects from the ideas competitions, IKI also contributes to ambitious mitigation measures solutions with independent large-scale initiatives. The BMU has created an international climate-financing programme that supports ambitious measures in combating climate change – the NAMA Facility. Other donors to the Facility besides IKI include the United Kingdom, the European Union and Denmark.

Through the “IKI Support Project for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (SPA)”, the German government is seeking to strengthen global initiatives and networks it has either founded or co-founded. These initiatives and networks include the Low Emission Development Strategies Global Partnership (LEDS GP) and the NDC Partnership (NDCP).

The “Strategic Partnerships for Implementation of the Paris Agreement” (SPIPA) of the BMU and the European Union are working also together with the G20 countries to strengthen the NDC for international economic and political relations.

The Nitric Acid Climate Action Group (NACAG) is another IKI initiative that advises and supports partner countries in the technical conversion of nitric acid factories, enabling them to exploit the great potential for reducing nitrous oxide emissions as swiftly as possible.

The IKI Secretariat

The Secretariat of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) supports the BMU in implementation of the IKI. It coordinates the organisation of the IKI selection procedures, examines project and programme applications on which the BMU finally makes decisions, and assesses the interim and final reports submitted to verify the use of funds and the achievement of project objectives. It also supports processes to safeguard projects within the context of policy and international law, facilitates the exchange of experience and networking among IKI projects and actors, and oversees IKI's public relations work.

The IKI Secretariat is operated by the BMU 's project management company Zukunft - Umwelt - Gesellschaft (ZUG) gGmbH. You can contact the IKI Secretariat on:
