Climate Change Mitigation

European Programme Life

The “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals was published by the European Commission, in the framework of the LIFE Programme, Environment Sub-Programme.

The European Programme LIFE shall in particular have the following general objectives:

- to contribute to the shift towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon and climate- resilient economy, to the protection and improvement of the quality of the environment and to halting and reversing biodiversity loss, including the support of the Natura 2000 network and tackling the degradation of ecosystems;

- to improve the development, implementation and enforcement of Union environmental and climate policy and legislation, and to act as a catalyst for, and promote, the integration and mainstreaming of environmental and climate objectives into other Union policies and public and private sector practice, including by increasing the public and private sector's capacity;

- to support better environmental and climate governance at all levels, including better involvement of civil society, NGOs and local actors;

- to support the implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme.

 

The “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals aims at contributing to the transition towards a low emission and climate-resilient economy. Testing new approaches to climate change mitigation will be one essential aspect for making this shift.

 

The priority area of the “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals, in the framework of the European Programme LIFE, has in particular the following specific objectives:

- to contribute to the implementation and development of Union policy and legislation on climate change mitigation, including mainstreaming across policy areas, in particular by developing, testing and demonstrating policy or management approaches, best practices and solutions for climate change mitigation;

- to improve the knowledge base for the development, assessment, monitoring, evaluation and implementation of effective climate change mitigation actions and measures and to enhance the capacity to apply that knowledge in practice;

- to facilitate the development and implementation of integrated approaches, such as for climate change mitigation strategies and action plans, at local, regional or national level;

- to contribute to the development and demonstration of innovative climate change mitigation technologies, systems, methods and instruments that are suitable for being replicated, transferred or mainstreamed.

 

The priority area of the “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals should contribute to the development and implementation of European Union climate-related policy and legislation, in particular with regard to greenhouse gas monitoring and reporting, policies related to land use, land-use change and forestry, conservation of natural carbon sinks, energy/GHG intensive industrial production, the emissions trading system, Member States' effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, carbon capture and storage, renewable energy, energy efficiency, transport and fuels, ozone layer protection and fluorinated gases. The construction of carbon capture and storage infrastructure is considered beyond the scope of the LIFE Programme and is therefore not to be supported.

 

For the 2014 “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals for the priority area of climate change mitigation project proposals focusing on synergies between environmental and climate actions associated with agriculture, forests and soils ("green sector"), including their monitoring are strongly encouraged. Projects are in particular encouraged to address the specific European Commission policy priorities: land use sector; greenhouse gas accounting of land use; sustainable use of solid biomass; agriculture.

 

For the duration of the first Multiannual Work Programme for 2014-2017, the maximum EU co-financing rate for “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals is 60% of the total eligible project costs.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “Climate Change Mitigation” call for proposals, defined in the framework of the European Programme LIFE, is 16 October 2014.
