LIFE+ Nature & Biodiversity projects improve the conservation status of endangered species and habitats. Projects under this heading contribute to the implementation of the EU's Birds and Habitats Directives, the Natura 2000 network and the EU's goal of halting the loss of biodiversity.
LIFE+ Environment Policy & Governance projects are innovative or pilot projects that contribute to the development of policy ideas, technologies, methods and instruments in numerous areas including air, water, waste, climate, soil and agriculture. This part of LIFE+ also helps projects that improve the implementation of EU environmental legislation, that build the environmental policy knowledge base, and that develop environmental information sources through monitoring (including forest monitoring).
LIFE+ Information and Communication projects relate to communication and awareness raising campaigns on environmental, nature protection or biodiversity conservation issues, as well as projects related to forest fire prevention.
