IKI SMALL GRANTS 5TH CALL OPEN UNTIL 13 MARCH 2024

Small organisations in ODA-eligible countries can apply for funding for climate and biodiversity projects. The IKI Small Grants call for proposals is open until 13 March 2024.

This international call for proposals addresses small regional, national, and local organisations based in ODA-eligible countries (except for current and potential EU member candidates, other than Ukraine). They are invited to apply directly for funding for local or regional climate and biodiversity projects. IKI Small Grants provides funding of between EUR 60,000 and 200,000 and is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Government.

Ambitious project proposals should focus on one or more of the following IKI funding areas:

  • Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Adaptation to the impacts of climate change
  • Conserving natural carbon sinks with a focus on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation
  • Conserving biological diversity

Local initiatives and solutions for global challenges

We further explicitly encourage projects which:

  • Support action on the ground to contribute to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030
  • Promote a just transition of economies towards decarbonization including fair social change especially for vulnerable groups
  • Strengthen networks, knowledge sharing and cooperation of organisations working on climate change and biodiversity related issues
  • Develop and promote use of climate smart technologies
  • Contribute to awareness raising and education regarding climate change and biodiversity
  • Engage in cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder cooperation
  • Support implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework

The selected organisations are accompanied and supported by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, which implements the IKI Small Grants Programme on behalf of Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, the Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).

Small-scale projects on climate and biodiversity action worldwide

Under the IKI Small Grants programme, many projects are to be selected in the coming years via international calls for proposals and funded with up to EUR 200,000 each. Four calls for proposals have already been implemented, and more than 120 projects in over 50 countries have been selected so far.
