The LIFE programme
Created in 1992, the LIFE programme is a EU’s funding instrument, which the general objective is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value.
In 2013, a new programme has been established for the period 2014-2020. It is organized in two sub-programmes: « Environment » and « Climate Action ». The sub-program “Environment” is divided into three components, including the “Nature and Biodiversity” component, in which the LIFE CROAA is integrated. Its specific objective is to contribute to the development and implementation of Union policy and legislation in the field of nature and biodiversity, including the Europe 2020 Strategy, and the Birds Directive and the Habitats Directive.
