Culture and Creativity

The LIFE programme co-finances projects in the areas of: • urban adaptation and land-use planning; • the resilience of infrastructure; • the sustainable management of water in drought-prone areas; • flood and coastal management • resilience of the agricultural, forestry and tourism sectors; • support to the EU's outermost regions in their preparedness for extreme weather events, notably in coastal areas. The programme provides action grants for best practice, pilot and demonstration projects that contribute to increase resilience to climate change. The Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation sub-programme contributes to the transition to a sustainable, energy-efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and resilient economy. Activities will contribute to sustainable development.
