The International Climate Initiative (IKI) is an important funder of GIZ’s Changing Transport projects. Since 2008 it is part of the German government’s international climate finance commitment. Currently, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) manages the initiative in close cooperation with the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and the Federal Foreign Office (AA).

The IKI follows its two-part funding philosophy. On the one hand, it issues thematic calls, without emphasizing individual countries. On the other hand, the IKI also engages in bilateral cooperation with 14 priority countries with the partner governments, to address specific and urgent topics.
GIZ is a long-standing partner of the IKI and implements a large number of IKI projects and programmes. These include several transport projects or project components in both bilateral and global or regional thematic programmes (see below). IKI co-funds the Changing Transport knowledge portal through global transport projects to facilitate knowledge management and synergies between projects.
