Funding programme

LIFE is the EU’s funding programme dedicated to the environment and climate action.

Call overview

This call aims at supporting the development, implementation, monitoring and enforcement of the Union legislation and policy on climate change.

Objective

LIFE Climate Change Governance and Information aims at supporting the development, implementation, monitoring and enforcement of the Union legislation and policy on climate change, contributing to climate change mitigation and/or adaptation. This includes improving governance through enhancing the capacities of public and private actors and the involvement of civil society.

Activities for the sole purpose of raising the awareness of certain groups are deemed insufficient to achieve these objectives, and therefore should be complemented with concrete measures that facilitate a change in behaviour or practices. Projects which aim to develop tools or studies must include specific and concrete action to implement these tools and studies during the duration of the project.

Scope

Areas of Intervention:

  • Raising awareness, incentivising behavioural change and supporting the activities of the European Climate Pact;
  • Green skills & capacity building to implement climate mitigation and adaptation policies;
  • Building capacity, raising awareness among end-users and the equipment distribution chain of fluorinated greenhouse gases;
  • Support to the development, update and implementation of national, regional or local climate and energy strategies and plans;
  • Activities linked to the implementation of Sustainable Finance actions;
  • Greenhouse gas monitoring and reporting;
  • Development of geographically-explicit inventories for the LULUCF sector, creation of carbon removal registries and certification schemes and organisation of capacity building activities and advisory services;
  • Knowledge sharing and capacity building on the EU Emissions Trading System;
  • Climate policy monitoring, assessment and ex-post evaluation.
