The European Commission’s LIFE programme has played an important role in demonstrating innovative approaches to the environmental challenges facing Europe’s local and regional authorities (LRAs).). To date, LRAs have led nearly 400 LIFE Environment co-funded projects, and partnered with other beneficiaries in over 200 more. A selection of these projects is included in this latest LIFE Focus publication. The projects provide a fount of useful knowledge and examples of best practice for local governments across the EU. This publication highlights the fact that Europe’s local and regional authorities can take the lead in implementing policy objectives formulated at EU level and have a key role to play in improving citizen awareness and encouraging public participation in actions to improve the environment.
