BRUSSELS, Belgium

New European Union (EU) funding will unlock more than $3.6 Billion USD of additional support to twelve large-scale environmental and climate projects in ten member states to support Europe’s transition to a low-carbon, circular economy. The new funding is part of “The LIFE Program”, the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action, and includes support for Estonia and Austria to combine effective river basin management with flood risk management and nature conservation, so that their water bodies can sustain both biodiversity and people.
