The LIFE program is the European Commission's financial instrument to support projects in the fields of environment and climate. It is aimed at public and private project leaders and aims to promote and finance innovative projects concerning, for example, species and habitat conservation, soil protection, air or water quality improvement, waste management or climate change mitigation or adaptation.

Integrated projects

Since 2014, the call for integrated projects allows for a grant of up to €10 million.

The main characteristics that integrated projects must meet are:

  • the scope of the project: an integrated project must cover a large territorial scale (regional, multi-regional, national or transnational) ;
  • the project's objective: an integrated project must implement environmental or climate strategies or action plans required by European legislation or developed by the Member States;
  • stakeholder involvement: an IP must ensure that all relevant stakeholders are involved in the implementation of the plan or strategy;
  • mobilization of other funding: an IP must ensure the financial participation of at least one other relevant source of national, private or European funding to finance complementary actions (outside the LIFE project) of the implemented plan or strategy. These must ensure the integration of the LIFE project into other public policies related to environmental preservation.

It is also expected that the integrated projects are carried by the authority responsible for the implementation of the plan or strategy in question.

Integrated project LIFE Marha

Marha is financed up to 60% by the European Union within the framework of the LIFE integrated project program. It is part of the sub-program "Environment - Nature" dedicated to the implementation of priority framework programs (PAF) for Natura 2000. It intervenes on a national scale by involving all the actors of Natura 2000 at sea. Marha's funding action provides for the financial participation of at least one other relevant national, private or European funding source to finance complementary actions that serve the same objective of improving the conservation status of marine natural habitats.
