The European Commission has approved an investment package of more than €290 million for 132 new projects under the LIFE programme for the Environment and Climate Action.

This EU funding under LIFE will mobilise a total investment of €562 million, with actions happening in almost all EU Member States. The new LIFE projects will help Europe become  a climate-neutral continent by 2050, put Europe’s biodiversity on the path of recovery by 2030, and contribute to the EU green recovery post-Covid-19.

Four marine Mediterranean projects were selected, 3 of which MedPAN has written letters of support for since their results can be of great interest for the network: LIFE ECOREST (Ecological restoration of human-impacted benthic marine ecosystems through active strategies and participatory approach), LIFE SEA.NET (Urgent actions for the implementation of marine Natura 2000 Network), LIFE A-MAR NATURA2000 (Knowing and loving the Natura 2000 marine sites to protect them).
