New online presence for the IKI


The new website for the International Climate Initiative (IKI) was launched on 6 April 2022.

Visitors and users can expect a contemporary design but above all, an optimized site structure.

Are you looking for information about funding options for the international financing of climate change mitigation and biodiversity? Would you like an overview of the 800 IKI projects that are or have been active in developing and emerging countries around the world since 2008? Or are you interested in getting a quick and informative look at the work of local IKI teams, as provided by our large library of project videos? 

Our new online platform makes comprehensive information resources about the IKI and its projects more accessible than ever.

Transparency and networking 

With its new website, the IKI fulfils its duties as a federal funding programme to make its working principles and the results of its work as transparent as possible to the general public. At the same time, the new online portal provides IKI implementing organisations and other actors with a starting-point for networking and sharing successful ideas for climate action and biodiversity conservation. 

The new site also completes the important step of ‘refreshing’ the IKI’s public image, following the development of a brand new corporate design. This is a visible reminder of the continuous process of improvement the funding programme has pursued since its formation in 2008. 

An interdisciplinary approach to climate action: an expanded remit for the IKI

In the wake of the federal elections at the end of last year, the new German government outlined how it would be promoting climate action as an interdepartmental task for all ministries. For the IKI, this has resulted in a changed and expanded remit: since 2022, it is now attached to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) – the leading ministry on climate. The funding programme also works closely with its founder, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), as well as the Federal Foreign Office (AA).

The full scope of this cooperation is currently being finalised and the implementing organisations will be informed in case of any changes that result from these new arrangements. 

The BMWK logo can already be seen on the new IKI website. Other communication channels will be updated step by step over the coming weeks. 

The IKI can now be found on Twitter under @iki_germany

ZUG gGmbH continues its work as programme implementing agency

The federally owned Zukunft - Umwelt - Gesellschaft (ZUG) gGmbH will continue to provide technical support, program management, evaluations of the projects and public relations through the IKI Office (formerly IKI Secretariat).

The ZUG gGmbH took over the role as IKI program support in 2018 and will continue to perform the tasks associated with this role.
