The LIFE Clean Energy Transition sub-programme supports the transition towards an energy-efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and -resilient economy. It provides funding for coordination and support actions that have high EU added-value, which are targeted at breaking market barriers that hamper the socio-economic transition to sustainable energy. Projects will typically engage multiple small and medium-sized stakeholders, multiple actors including local and regional public authorities and non-profit organisations, as well as consumers.

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 circular economy and quality of life sub-programme aims to facilitate the transition toward a sustainable, circular, toxic-free, energy-efficient and climate-resilient economy, and at protecting, restoring and improving the quality of the environment The sub-programme involves direct interventions, or can support the integration of those aims in other policies. Thus, LIFE will continue to co-finance projects in the environmental sector, in particular in the area of the circular economy.
