2019 LIFE Call for Proposals for Traditional Projects- Climate Change Mitigation

Deadline: 12 September 2019

LIFE Call for Proposals for Traditional Projects on Climate Change Mitigation to improve the knowledge base for the development, assessment, monitoring, evaluation and implementation of effective climate change mitigation actions and measures and to enhance the capacity to apply that knowledge in practice.

Objectives

Climate Change Mitigation has in particular the following specific objectives:

  • to contribute to the implementation and development of Union policy and legislation on climate change mitigation, including mainstreaming across policy areas, in particular by developing, testing and demonstrating policy or management approaches, best practices and solutions for climate change mitigation;
  • to improve the knowledge base for the development, assessment, monitoring, evaluation and implementation of effective climate change mitigation actions and measures and to enhance the capacity to apply that knowledge in practice;
  • to facilitate the development and implementation of integrated approaches, such as for climate change mitigation strategies and action plans, at local, regional or national level;
  • to contribute to the development and demonstration of innovative climate change mitigation technologies, systems, methods and instruments that are suitable for being replicated, transferred or mainstreamed.

EU Climate Policy Objectives

Projects under the Climate Change Mitigation Priority Area should contribute to the transition towards a low emission economy and to reaching the EU target of at least 40% greenhouse gas emission reduction for 2030 compared with 1990 levels, as well as renewable energy and energy efficiency targets of at least 27% compared with the business-as-usual scenario.

The Union climate policy and legislation aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions focus in particular on:

  • renewable energy,
  • energy efficiency,
  • the emissions trading system,
  • energy and greenhouse gas intensive industrial production,
  • land use, agriculture and forestry,
  • conservation and enhancement of natural carbon sinks,
  • transport and fuels,
  • fluorinated gases and ozone depleting substances,
  • carbon capture and use,
  • carbon capture and storage,
  • efforts by Member States and regional/local authorities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and
  • greenhouse gas monitoring and reporting.

EU Policy Areas

According to the LIFE Programme Multiannual Work Programme 2018-202019, the EU policy areas are the following:

  • Member States’ and regional/ local authorities’ efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the sectors not covered in the EU Emissions Trading System but covered by the Effort Sharing Decision (EU) 406/2009 and subsequent legislation:
    • transport and fuels,
    • agriculture,
    • construction (e.g. energy efficiency in buildings),
    • land use,
    • land-use change and forestry;
  • The development and implementation of greenhouse gas accounting and climate change mitigation in the land use sector;
  • The development of land management practices which have an impact on emissions and removals of emissions;
  • Actions which enhance the functioning of the emissions trading system and which have an impact on energy and greenhouse gas intensive industrial production;
  • Fluorinated gases and ozone – depleting substances;
  • Greenhouse gas monitoring and reporting by authorities.

Eligibility Criteria
