Policy and Governance

LIFE+ Environment Policy & Governance

The Environment Policy & Governance component continues and extends the former LIFE Environment programme. It will co-finance innovative or pilot projects that contribute to the implementation of European environmental policy and the development of innovative policy ideas, technologies, methods and instruments. It will also help monitor pressures (including the long-term monitoring of forests and environmental interactions) on our environment.

The LIFE programme aims to reduce the environmental impact of goods and services. Numerous LIFE projects cover an extremely broad area within the field of “Industry & production”, ranging from the demonstration of innovative clean technologies in various types of industry and other economic sectors, to the development and optimization of methods for monitoring and managing environmental impacts.
