In anticipation of the award of the first action grants from the LIFE sub-programme for Climate Action, the latest LIFE Environment Focus publication takes an in-depth look at LIFE's work till now in support of climate change mitigation.
The LIFE and Climate change mitigation brochure gives an overview of EU climate policy and provides a host of best practice examples from more than 200 featured projects from across the European Union.
With a foreword by EU Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, Miguel Arias Cañete, the 88-page publication includes interviews with representatives of DG Climate Action and with NGOs active in the field. These highlight the climate mitigation challenges ahead and LIFE's role in the transition to low-carbon agriculture.
LIFE climate change mitigation project examples are divided by theme, with chapters on strategies and plans at local, regional and national level; energy; transport; agriculture and forestry; the role of peatlands and wetlands as carbon sinks; and projects involving enterprises.
Each of these chapters highlights useful lessons from completed LIFE projects and potential areas of focus for future funding. As such it is essential reading for practitioners, policy-makers and all those with an interest in the work that the European Union is doing to fight climate change.
If you are interested in ordering a printed copy of this and other LIFE Focus publications, please visit the ordering publications section of the LIFE website.
