Call overview

This call 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.

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 are therefore not encouraged. Projects which set out to develop tools or studies must include specific and concrete action to implement these tools and studies during the duration of the project.

Areas of intervention

  • Support to the operation of the European Climate Pact
  • Incentivising behavioural change, mainstream emission reduction and resource and energy efficiency actions
  • Awareness-raising activities addressing adaptation and mitigation needs
  • Activities linked to the development and implementation of the Sustainable Finance actions
  • Greenhouse gas monitoring and reporting
  • Implementation/further development of national 2030 climate and energy strategies and/or mid-century strategies
  • Development and implementation of greenhouse gas accounting and climate change mitigation in the land use sector
  • Assessment of the functioning of the EU ETS
  • Building capacity, raising awareness among end-users and the equipment distribution chain of fluorinated greenhouse gases
  • Climate policy monitoring, assessment and ex-post evaluation
