Yes, The International Climate Initiative (IKI) Medium Grants have been launched which are aimed at civil society actors based in Germany that work in concert with local partners in selected ODA-eligible implementing countries to put measures in place to intensify North-South cooperation on climate action, adaptation to the impacts of climate change and biodiversity conservation.
The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) has launched this Initiative to focus on the resilience of local populations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change adaptation, as well as on strengthening participatory processes for ambitious climate action.
IKI Medium Grants explicitly aim at strengthening these civil society actors and their international networks. Specifically, IKI Medium Grants support project activities that address innovative, bottom-up contributions for implementing the Paris Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 24-May-2021.
