Description of programme
"Climate Action"

LIFE Climate Action is one of the two sub-programmes of the European Union's main funding programme for the environment. It supports both climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation projects. Mitigation projects contribute to substantially reducing Europe's greenhouse gas emissions; adaptation projects address the inevitable impacts of climate change. This part of LIFE co-finances projects that help develop and demonstrate the most effective technologies, tools and methodologies that can be taken to meet EU's policy targets on climate change.

The sub-programme for Climate Action shall have three priority areas:

  • Climate Change Mitigation;
  • Climate Change Adaptation;
  • Climate Governance and Information.

It is encouraged, where relevant, for projects to contribute to more than one of those priority areas and to involve the participation of more than one Member State. Synergies with other environmental and climate policies should be a central theme of adaptation projects.
