At the heart of the EU Green Deal, the LIFE programme has proudly funded over 5500 projects since 1992. Born in line and in time with the Habitat’s directive, it has evolved into an instrument that still supports Nature conservation but is also driving the movement towards a Circular Economy and Clean Energy future. Two key areas (Environment and Climate) are divided into 4 sub-programs, and the goal is essentially to protect and preserve LIFE.
The LIFE programme supports the EU’s Green Deal’s objectives through policy driven action, KPIs and freedom to create tailor made projects. With a sizeable budget increase as well as a new sub-programme funding Coordination Support Actions in Clean Energy, diversity and sustainability are key.
The funding increase of almost 60% provides a total budget of €5.4 billion. This budget will be split, with €3.5 billion going to Environment and €1.9 billion to Climate. In it’s totality, through the programme, 30% of the EU’s budget will therefore contribute to climate objectives and up to 10% to biodiversity.
The new and expanded LIFE programme is now divided into four sub-programmes:
