Description: German Federal Environment Ministry (BMUB) currently has two main mechanisms for provision of financial support: Environmental Innovation Programme for Projects Abroad – this programme of Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety provides financial support for projects which will have direct environmental effects on Germany or which will increase, via a “philosophy transfer” and a maximum possible multiplier effect, the willingness to invest in climate action measures in the respective countries. More information on the programme priorities and application criteria are available here. International Climate Initiative (IKI) was established in 2008. BMUB uses this instrument to strengthen cooperation between the German Government and developing and transition countries and emerging economies, in order to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and preserve biodiversity.
