European Commission: Seeking Applications for its LIFE Climate Action Programme

Deadline: 12 September 2018

European Commission is seeking applications for its LIFE sub-programme for Climate Action which aims specifically to contribute to the shift towards a resource-efficient, low- carbon and climate-resilient economy.

Projects under this call for proposals should support the implementation of the EU’s climate policy and prepare the EU for the climate action challenges in the coming years.

Projects must choose which priority area they contribute to and indicate this in the application form in eProposal. It is encouraged, where relevant, for projects to contribute to more than one of the priority areas.

Objectives

  • To improve the development, implementation and enforcement of Union climate policy and legislation;
  • To act as a catalyst for, and promote, the integration and mainstreaming of climate objectives into other Union policies and public and private sector practice;
  • To support better climate governance at all levels, including better involvement of civil society, NGOs and local actors.

Priority Areas

The sub-programme for climate action covers three priority areas:

      • Improve the knowledge base for the development, assessment, monitoring, evaluation and implementation of effective climate change mitigation actions and measures and that enhance the capacity to apply that knowledge in practice;
      • Facilitate the development and implementation of integrated approaches, such as for climate change mitigation strategies and action plans, at local, regional or national level;
