This EU funding will mobilise a total investment of €562 million, with projects in almost all Member States.

The new LIFE projects will help Europe become a climate-neutral continent by 2050, put Europe’s biodiversity on a path to recovery by 2030, and contribute to the EU green recovery post-Covid-19.

This is the first batch of projects selected under the new programming period 2021-2027 which sees an increase of the funding by almost 60%.
