The LIFE programme is the only programme at EU level dedicated to the environment and climate. It is also the most ambitious environmental programme ever put in place. 3.5 billion euros will be devoted to activities related to the environment and 1.9 billion for climate action. When granting funds, the Commission should give the priority to projects which are particularly of obvious European interest, which are most likely to be replicated successfully, and taken over by the public or private sector or mobilise the largest investments. LIFE will also encourage the use of green public procurement.
