Applications invited for IKI Small Grants Programme

Applications invited for IKI Small Grants Programme

Organization: The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)

Apply By: 15 Apr 2022

Grant Amount: 60000 Euro


About the Organization:
Strengthening climate and biodiversity action worldwide
The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) is committed to strengthening climate and biodiversity action worldwide. Through its International Climate Initiative (IKI), it finances projects and programmes on climate change mitigation, adaptation as well as forest and biodiversity conservation on an international level. It is thus contributing to the global framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
Why IKI “Small” Grants?
Achieving the global and national targets formulated in the Paris Agreement and the CBD requires the active participation of all social groups worldwide, especially on the local and regional level. However, local organisations in ODA-eligible countries often lack access to international funding, or financing mechanisms are not tailored to their specific needs. With the IKI Small Grants programme, founded in 2019, BMU extends its IKI strategy and reaches out to small regional, national and local organisations and their decentralized solutions. It is specifically aimed at organisations that already have experience in local project implementation and want to grow further.
Two approaches – one goal:
IKI Small Grants comprises two components: ‘International Calls’ and ‘Funding Institutions’, accompanied by extensive capacity development measures (see graphic). Both components share one common goal: supporting small-scale, local or regional climate and biodiversity action in ODA-eligible countries. International Calls seeks to reach projects directly through regular calls for proposals and the provision of direct funding. Over a 5-year period, about 11 million euros will be provided to approximately 100 selected projects. The component Funding Institutions cooperates with 6 national and regional institutions engaged in the area of climate and biodiversity. It provides them with administrative and technical advice and funding of 5 Million euros in total to implement their own calls for proposals and funding lines.
About the Grant:
In a one-stage selection procedure, small regional, national and local organisations based in an ODA-eligible country can apply directly for funding of the implementation of local or regional climate and biodiversity projects. IKI Small Grants selects project proposals and provides funding between EUR 60,000 and EUR 200,000.
Are you a member of an organisation working to address climate change or conserve biodiversity? Is your organisation registered in an ODA-eligible country and do you have an effective, innovative, or creative non-profit project idea? Then please take at look at the following sections and our Funding Information.
Selection criteria:
Applicants must be based and registered in countries that are on the DAC List of ODA Recipients. Please note that proposals from countries that are official or potential candidates for EU membership are no longer eligible for IKI Small Grants.
Organisations must be operative for at least three years.
Over the last three years the organisation must have an average annual revenue of at least EUR 60,000 and no more than EUR 500,000.
The average annual revenue of the last three years should be higher than (or equal to) the requested funding volume.
Organisations have to be not-for-profit organisations. For-profit non-government organisations are eligible if they pursue strictly non-profit objectives within the scope of their proposed project.
The applicant must have dedicated accounting staff and have accounting principles that ensure internal as well as external control mechanisms.
The applicant organisation must employ a software-based accounting system which meets its respective national standards.
Eligibility Criteria concerning the project:

Mitigating greenhouse gas emissions
Adapting to the impacts of climate change
Conserving natural carbon sinks / REDD+
Conserving biological diversity
The duration of the proposed projects should cover a minimum of twelve months and a maximum of two years. Longer durations may be acceptable if justified appropriately.
