Launch of two extensive regional IKI programmes with Vietnamese components

The BMU has commissioned two large IKI programmes that both have a focus in Vietnam: The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia and the project “Clean Affordable and Secure Energy for South East Asia” (CASE).

The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia is a joint project of seven organisations under the lead of GIZ, and will operate in China, India, and Vietnam. The programme aims to promote a comprehensive approach on decarbonizing transport. Towards this end, the initiative will develop a coherent strategy of effective policies to be coordinated among various sector ministries, civil society, and the private sector. In each of the partner countries, the consortium supports the facilitation of stakeholder processes and the development of selected climate actions. This enables partners to make a sectoral contribution towards achieving their NDCs and increase ambitions in transport sections of long-term strategies and 2025 NDCs. As a regional initiative, the programme also disseminates knowledge in Asia. The consortium connects with regional stakeholders and other Asian countries to encourage a comprehensive approach to decarbonizing transport. On a global level, the programme will disseminate and share experiences in the UNFCCC process.

The CASE project aims to drive change in the power sector in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam towards increased climate change ambition. Its goal is to initiate a sustainable political and societal change of the energy transition narrative through building the capacities of local actors in order to change the way energy policies are informed and made. The implementation consortium brings together a broad range of international and local organisations and will work with a large number of counterparts. CASE will propose evidence-based solutions to the challenges confronting decision makers in the design and implementation of the energy systems of the future, while building strong public support for government reforms. A collaborative fact-finding approach will be applied to work towards consensus by working on areas of disagreement. CASE will also support coordination and capacity development, provide technical and policy support, and facilitate dialogue around a new energy vision. Through these activities, CASE will contribute to a transition towards an innovative, economically successful, and environmentally and climate friendly energy model for Southeast Asia.

The IKI Vietnam Newsletter is administered by the IKI interface in Vietnam hosted by GIZ. It informs regularly about news of climate change and biodiversity projects in Vietnam financed by the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The International Climate Initiative (IKI) is an important part of the German government’s international climate finance commitment. Since 2022 the IKI is implemented by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) in close cooperation with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and the Federal Foreign Office (AA).

IKI Independent Complaint Mechanism (IKI ICM)

Any person who is (potentially) negatively affected by an IKI project, can file a complaint via the IKI Independent Complaint Mechanism (ICM). 

It works to enable people who suffer (potential) negative social and/or environmental consequences from IKI project. ​

  • Any person or a group of persons, or a community that has been or may be affected negatively by an IKI project may file a complaint.​
  • Persons wishing to do so can report integrity and/or corruption issues, such as misuse of funds, fraud etc.​
  • If persons experience reprisals in relation to an IKI project or a complaint, they can also use the mechanism. The affected person(s) can authorise a representative to file and pursue the complaint on their behalf.​
