Joint declaration on the future of the European Commission’s LIFE Programme

INVESTING WHERE IT COUNTS – THE EU MUST DEDICATE AT LEAST 1% OF ITS BUDGET TO THE LIFE PROGRAMME TO BETTER PROTECT OUR NATURE AND CLIMATE

Since its creation in 1992, the EU’s LIFE Programme has delivered outstanding performance and high added value. However, the current funds are not sufficient to tackle the major environmental challenges Europe faces. We therefore call for LIFE to be continued after 2020 as a highly effective and efficient instrument, and for its funding to be increased to at least 1% of the overall EU budget. This is a critical investment in healthy ecosystems and key to innovation and meeting the EU’s environment, nature conservation and climate change objectives, which will support prosperity, jobs and well-being of EU citizens in a truly sustainable economy.

WWF and BirdLife have developed a statement on the LIFE programme (to see the full statement please see the link below), asking for more support and funding in the next budget post 2020.
