Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), Germany: Inviting applications for ‘grant’ for climate protection and the conservation of biodiversity.

Funding brief: The IKI key objectives are on climate protection and the conservation of biodiversity. And IKI seeks to maximize synergies between these two objectives. The main focus of the IKI in the area of climate protection is to provide support for the implementation of the United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The aim is to effectively support partner countries in implementing the nationally determined contributions (NDCs) on climate protection. In the NDCs, the signatory states of the Paris Climate Agreement set their climate protection and adaptation objectives running up to 2030.

In order to address the dramatic global loss of biological diversity, the IKI supports the efforts of the Aichi Targets formulated under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The support measures should be derived from the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plans (NBSAPs), through, support of their implementation and complement existing initiatives to protect biodiversity at national, regional and international levels.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations in 2015 contains 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs). It forms the global framework for climate protection and biodiversity conservation, that goes beyond the two conventions (UNFCCC and CBD). The 2030 Agenda is the compass for the urgently-needed change of course, towards more environmentally and climate-friendly economies, sustainable lifestyles and species protection in industrialized, emerging and developing countries.
