CEPP Senior Advisor, Ned Helme is serving as Moderator for the 10 Year International Climate Initiative (IKI) Conference in Bonn on May 5, 2018. This event marks the tenth anniversary of the German government program to assist developing countries in policy development and implementation in ten topic areas affecting climate policy. It has targeted several billion dollars in German aid, with a substantial portion awarded competitively to developing countries through the NAMA Facility (NF). The NF finances new climate-protective policy initiatives.
This conference will highlight policy successes and point the way to the next decade of action to support the Paris Climate Accord, reduce GHG emissions, support sustainable development, and shift the international development paradigm. The NAMA Facility was the forerunner to the Green Climate Fund (GCF), which provides a potentially much larger funding source ($10 billion initial capitalization) for larger projects in developing countries.
