Mitigation of Climate Change

IKI provides support to partner countries for developing and implementing innovative instruments for mitigating their greenhouse gas emissions. The ultimate goal is to transform economic and supply structures so that they are sustainable and carbon-neutral. At the level of political governance, nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and long-term strategies (LTS) are essential tools. The IKI also supports the development of systems for measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation activities. A large number of projects also pursue the goal of mobilising public and private capital for climate change mitigation. The mitigation funding area addresses policy consulting, capacity building and training measures, as well as cooperation on technologies.
