IKI Small and Medium Grants

The IKI Small and Medium Grants is a funding mechanism aimed for small-scale projects. This is in response to the implementation of the Paris Agreement and with recognition of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) requirements to strengthen smaller stakeholders' capacities in developing and emerging countries and the effective involvement of all social groups. Until now, the IKI has two other funding pools namely the thematic-oriented and country-specific selection procedures. These however primarily promote large-volume programmes in order to accelerate the transformation towards a sustainable and low-carbon economy and its connected supply structures.

IKI Small Grants is aimed at non-governmental and non-profit organisations in developing and emerging countries, as well as national funding institutions. Whereas the IKI Medium Grants is intended to support non-governmental and other non-profit organisations based in Germany to realize projects in developing and emerging countries.
