Funding Information


The IKI Small Grants programme provides funding within two components: ‘International Calls’ and ‘Funding Institutions’.

Both components fund non-profit projects and initiatives that address the four IKI support areas:

  • Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Adaptation to the impacts of climate change
  • Conservation of natural carbon sinks/REDD+
  • Conservation of biodiversity

International Calls

The IKI Small Grants component “International Calls” regularly conducts international calls for proposals. In a one-stage selection procedure, small sub-national, national and regional organisations based in an ODA-eligible country can apply directly for funding of the implementation of local or regional climate and biodiversity projects.

For general funding information, please take a look at our International Calls – Funding Information section.

For detailed information on the latest call for proposals, please take a look at our Current Selection Procedure section.

Implementing organisations of the 2020 and 2021 calls can find relevant information, documents, guidelines and templates in our Information regarding Previous Calls section.

Funding Institutions

The IKI Small Grants component “Funding Institutions” strengthens the capacities of national and regional institutions to implement their own funding programme in the respective countries or regions.
