LIFE: ENVIRONMENT AND CLIMATE ACTION


Summary

The new “LIFE Programme for the Environment and Climate“ has a budget of EU €3.4 billion for environmental projects carried out by public or private bodies, in the period 2014-2020.

Programme Description

The LIFE Programme’s general objectives are the following:

  • To contribute to the shift towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon and climate-resilient economy, to the protection and improvement of the quality of the environment and to halting and reversing biodiversity loss, including the support of the Natura 2000 network and tackling the degradation of ecosystems;
  • To improve the development, implementation and enforcement of Union environmental  and climate policy and legislation, and to act as a catalyst for, and promote, the integration and mainstreaming of environmental and climate objectives into other Union policies and public and private sector practice, including by increasing the public and private sector’s capacity;
  • To support better environmental and climate governance at all levels, including better involvement of civil society, NGOs and local actors;
  • To support the implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme.

 

In pursuing these objectives, the LIFE programme shall contribute to sustainable development and to the achievement of the objectives and targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy, the 7th Union Environmental Action Programme and other relevant EU environment and climate strategies and plans. The new LIFE Programme with two subprogrammes, one for Environment and one for Climate Action, will pursue the above general objectives. It is noted that the creation of a subprogramme for Climate Action upgrades the former thematic strand “climate change” under the LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance component.

The ‘Environment’ strand of the new programme covers three priority areas: environment and resource efficiency; nature and biodiversity; and environmental governance and information. The ‘Climate Action’ strand covers climate change mitigation; climate change adaptation; and climate governance and information.

 

The programme also consists of a new category of projects, jointly funded integrated projects, which will operate on a large territorial scale. These projects will aim to implement environmental and climate policy and to better integrate such policy aims into other policy areas.
