The European Commission and the LIFE tool
The LIFE program (the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action) is a financial instrument of the European Commission entirely dedicated to supporting projects in the fields of the environment and climate. The LIFE Biodiv’Paysanne project sticks into the LIFE Nature & Biodiversity category, which aims more specifically to protect and restore nature in Europe and to halt and reverse the trend of biodiversity erosion, in accordance with the strategy of the EU in favor of biodiversity by 2030. It thus receives the support of the European Commission to the tune of 60% of the expenditure.
L'agence de l'eau Adour-Garonne
Agence de l’eau Adour-Garonne is an expert in water issues in south-west France. In a context of climate change, it acts for a sustainable and united sharing of water resources and to guarantee the preservation of the quality of water and aquatic and wetland environments. Preserving the biodiversity and functionalities of wet meadows by promoting innovative sectors as provided for by LIFE Biodiv’Paysanne perfectly meets the need to link social, economic and environmental issues at the heart of the territories. This project is fully in line with the heritage and economic enhancement of the services provided by wet meadows while strengthening the resilience of the territories in the face of the effects of climate change.
