The Federal Environment Ministry's model climate projects under the International Climate Initiative are geared towards meeting the needs of the partner countries and supporting climate protection measures, in particular reducing greenhouse gases, improving adaptability to the consequences of climate change and conserving and using climate-relevant areas which merit protection. The Initiative therefore also supports the implementation of the Copenhagen Accord and facilitates consensus-building regarding an ambitious post-2012 climate agreement. It is part of the German contribution to fast-start financing, the commitment of industrialised countries in the Copenhagen Accord to financing immediate climate protection measures in developing countries until 2012.
