The LIFE+ Programme

LIFE is the EU’s financial instrument supporting environmental and nature conservation projects throughout the EU, as well as in some candidate, acceding and neighbouring countries. Since 1992, LIFE has co-financed some 3954 projects, contributing approximately €3.1 billion to the protection of the environment (source: website, 27/02/2014).

In 2013, the European Commission approved funding for 125 new environmental innovation projects in 22 countries, financing a total of €130.8 million under the LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance programme.

The LIFE+ Environment Policy & Governance strand of LIFE+ supports pilot projects that contribute to the development of innovative policy ideas, technologies, methods and instruments. This strand is one of the three thematic components under the LIFE+ Programme. The other two components, LIFE+ Nature & Biodiversity and LIFE+ Information & Communication, focus respectively on improving the conservation status of endangered species and habitats, and on disseminating information and raising the profile of environmental issues, or providing training and awareness-raising.
