European Environmental NGOs recommendations for the new LIFE programme

CEEweb for Biodiversity together with most of the European Environmental NGOs welcome the continuation of LIFE programme as the single financial mechanism of the European Union devoted exclusively on environmental issues. The draft of the new LIFE Programme regulation released in December 2011 includes a number of logical and important new elements like allowing organisations from non-EU countries to participate in LIFE projects or easing the administrative burden. Including climate aspects in the LIFE Programme is also a much needed change.

On the other hand, we would like to add some further recommendations, which can even further enhance the efficiency of the new programme.

Also, to evaluate the impact of the proposed new LIFE programme, the Hellenic Ornithological Society compiled an assessment to check the potential effects on the nature projects in Greece. Read their study here.
