The blog “IKI Alliance Mexico” was launched on 8th of March 2018 and reports on activities and impacts of the 39 projects of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) in Mexico, funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
Currently, more than 15 organizations are implementing 39 IKI projects in Mexico in the four IKI funding areas: mitigation, adaptation, REDD + and biodiversity. As the IKI interface project, the “Mexican-German Climate Change Alliance” (a bilateral IKI project implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH) manages this new blog, which informs about news and events of IKI projects as well as current developments in climate and biodiversity policies in Mexico. With this blog and the new newsletter, exchange and synergies among IKI projects in Mexico are sought to be promoted.
In addition, the second networking workshop will be organized in April 2018, addressed to IKI projects, their Mexican counterparts, the IKI and the BMUB. The workshop will take a thematic approach facilitating exchange and synergies among IKI projects. Its objectives are to define the contributions of IKI projects to the NDC and Mexico¨s National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan as well as to identify synergies among the contributions of the IKI projects to the NDC and the 2030 Agenda. In addition, tools and lessons learned will be exchanged and further synergies among IKI projects will be identified by means of three key themes (finance, transparency and mainstreaming). The workshop takes place on 12th and 13th of April 2018 in Mexico City (closed event).
