With the IKI Small Grants scheme BMU extends its IKI strategy and outreach to small national, regional and local organisations to encourage active citizen involvement and local approaches to threats caused by climate change and biodiversity loss. They will be supported through the financing of the proposed projects but will also receive support through accompanying measures for capacity development of their organisations. Furthermore, organisations will be aided where possible and necessary by GIZ in enlarging their networks and integrating their activities into national policy objectives.
Project proposals must clearly address one of the IKI funding areas (although in some cases project concepts might include more than one funding area):
• Mitigating greenhouse gas emissions
• Adapting to the impacts of climate change
• Conserving natural carbon sinks / REDD+
• Conserving biological diversity Please note that project proposals must clearly focus on solving challenges related to climate change or nature conservation.
