Four countries from CEE might join the LIFE programme for environment and climate

The European Commission has launched negotiations on the association to the LIFE programme for environment and climate with seven non-EU countries including, from CEE, Albania, Moldova, North Macedonia and Turkey.

Joining LIFE will help these countries spread innovative environment and climate techniques, approaches and best practices that contribute to a climate-neutral, circular and resilient economy which protects and restore nature.

“Environment and climate challenges have no borders,” said Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius. “We can only tackle the triple planetary crisis of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution by acting together. By increasing substantially the number of countries participating in the LIFE programme, we put in action concrete cooperation and exchange of solutions beyond the EU for a healthy planet.”

Through this partnership, public and private organisations of these countries will be able to receive financial support for projects to: develop and demonstrate eco-innovative techniques and approaches; promote best practices and behavioural changes; support the development, monitoring and enforcement of laws similar to the ones in EU as well as plans and strategies that can contribute to implementing these laws; catalyse the large-scale deployment of successful solutions.
