International Climate Initiative (IKI) Small Grants supports projects and organizations worldwide that tackle climate change, address local adaptation, and conserve forests and biodiversity. Since 2008 the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Government has been funding large scale projects that support the implementation of both the United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in enacting the Paris Agreement as well as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in addressing the global loss of biodiversity (Aichi Targets and the goals of the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework).
