Climate Action

EU invests €240 million for nature, environment and climate action

13/11/2019

This autumn more than 120 new projects will be funded under the LIFE programme for the Environment and Climate Action, helping Europe shift to a more sustainable and low-carbon future. Approximately €240 million will go to projects in the fields of nature and biodiversity, environment and resource efficiency, and climate action, mobilising additional investments in these areas.

Projects will tackle a wide range of issues, from invasive species and wildlife crime to waste, pollutants, use of fossil fuels and materials derived from them, and greenhouse gas emissions. Almost a third are focused on mitigating and coping with the effects of climate change, while many projects will restore and protect important wildlife habitats as well as conserve rare and threatened species. This broad set of topics will contribute to the European Green Deal, to be drawn up by the incoming European Commission, helping Europe become a climate-neutral continent.
