Integrated projects

Integrated Projects were introduced to enable statutory authorities in EU Member States to implement environmental and climate legislation to the fullest extent. Integrated Projects provide funding for plans, programmes and strategies developed on the regional, multi-regional or national level. They help Member States comply with key EU legislation in six areas:

  • Nature
  • Water
  • Air
  • Waste
  • Climate Change Mitigation
  • Climate Change Adaptation

The unique thing about Integrated Projects is they allow Member States to make use of other EU funding sources, including agricultural, structural, regional and research funds, as well as national funds and private sector investment. To learn more about Integrated Projects, watch this short video.

Since their introduction in 2014, there have been 25 Integrated Projects led by authorities in 14 Member States (and involving actions in 18 countries). These projects have a combined budget of more than € 460 million. They are also mobilising more than € 5 billion in complementary funding from other EU and national funds and the private sector.

Integrated projects under the sub-programme for Environment are projects implementing on a large territorial scale (regional, multi-regional, national or trans-national scale) environmental plans or strategies required by specific Union environmental legislation, developed pursuant to other Union acts or developed by Member States' authorities, primarily in the areas of nature (including Natura 2000 network management), water, waste and air, while ensuring involvement of stakeholders and promoting the coordination with and mobilisation of at least one other relevant Union, national or private funding source.

Integrated projects under the sub-programme for Climate Action are projects implementing on a large territorial scale (regional, multi-regional, national or trans-national scale) climate action plans, strategies or roadmaps required by specific Union climate legislation, developed pursuant to other Union acts or developed by Member States' authorities, primarily in the areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation, while ensuring involvement of stakeholders and promoting the coordination with and mobilisation of at least one other relevant Union, national or private funding source.
