Manage Project

The International Climate Initiative (IKI) is a funding programme established by the German Federal Government and forms part of Germany's engagement with international climate and biodiversity financing. The IKI has committed itself to a very high level of transparency. All reporting from IKI projects follow a standard procedure in order to fully document and evaluate project results and provide learning outcomes as a public service.

The process steps of an IKI project at a glance

All templates and supporting documents for the entire project process is accessible via this page - as a download or a link to online forms. In addition, the IKI Office at Zukunft – Umwelt – Gesellschaft (ZUG) provides advice and assistance on all technical, administrative and process-related issues.

The templates include all information required to ensure timely and compliant reporting on project implementation and on the use of funds. Support is also provided for the implementation of the mandatory IKI Gender Strategy, IKI Safeguards as well as guidelines on public relations work for IKI projects.

Most of the templates for IKI projects are provided as English-language documents.

Please note that the templates and processes for reporting may slightly differ for the IKI Medium Grants and the IKI Small Grants. The IKI Small Grants programme is managed by the German Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). For full details of what is required, please visit the IKI Small Grants website.

This site is regularly updated. Please contact us if you have any questions. We would be happy to receive your input to improve the website design.
