Objectives

The Commission has identified some specific needs to be addressed through dedicated calls (the so-called Other Actions (OAs). They include, amongst others, specific projects addressing specific needs for the development and implementation of Union environmental or climate policy and legislation.

The 3 topics under this call for proposals concerns LIFE specific projects addressing ad hoc Legislative and Policy Priorities (PLP).

Based on article 11 of the LIFE Regulation 2021/783 ) the LIFE Multi Annual Work Programme 2021-2024 (COM(2021) 4997 final), includes the possibility to finance each year a limited number of specific projects designed to support specific needs for the development and implementation of Union environment policy and legislation.

For reference, the LIFE projects, called in the past LIFE Regulation preparatory projects, are now called specific projects addressing ad hoc Legislative and Policy Priorities (PLP).

Point 4.1.4 of the Multi Annual Work Programme indicates that under the so called Other Actions, additional projects responding to the Union legislative and policy priorities could be determined on annual basis, following a consultation with Member States.

Once a year the Commission makes an inventory of the specific needs regarding the development and implementation of Union environmental or climate policy and legislation that need to be addressed during the following years and identifies among them the needs that could be addressed by specific projects.

Before launching this annual call for proposals, the Member States received a draft list of the identified specific needs that could be addressed by those projects and were asked to comment. Based on these comments, the final list was established.

Scope

Under this call, the proposals may be submitted only to address the following specific needs, based on the final list of specific projects established by the Member States.

The proposed specific project under the topic LIFE 2021-PREP-Network shall address the following specific need identified.

Specific project: Fostering the Network of LIFE National Contact Points (NCP).
