(16 November 2020) – The European Commission has approved an investment package of more than €280 million from the EU budget for over 120 new environment, nature and climate action LIFE projects.
This EU funding will trigger total investments of nearly €590 million to help meet these projects’ goals for environment, nature, and climate action. This amount represents a 37% rise compared to last year.
The projects will help to achieve the European Green Deal objectives by supporting the EU Biodiversity Strategy and the Circular Economy Action Plan.
They will contribute to the green recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic, and help Europe become a climate-neutral continent by 2050, among others.
