ICI Call For Proposal on Climate Protection Projects in developing, newly industrialising and transition countries

the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) to launch the International Climate Initiative (ICI) in 2008. It strengthens Germany’s bilateral cooperation with developing, newly industrialising and transition countries in the field of climate protection and supports the ongoing negotiation process for a comprehensive global climate agreement.

The International Climate Initiative supports climate protection projects in developing, newly industrialising and transition countries ("partner countries") and complements the Federal Government's existing international, multi- and bilateral cooperation. The projects are geared towards the needs of the partner countries and are intended to support them in climate protection, especially reducing greenhouse gases, improving adaptability to the consequences of climate change and conserving and sustainably using climate-relevant areas which merit protection.

Support can be granted for both investment projects and activities in the fields of technology transfer, policy advice, research cooperation, capacity development and training and elaboration of studies and strategies. Support for partner countries under the International Climate Initiative in 2010 and 2011 focuses on the following areas:
(a) Area I: Climate-friendly economy
(b) Area II: Adaptation to climate change
(c) Area III: Preservation and sustainable use of natural carbon sinks / REDD
