The Call is open to project proposals to be presented exclusively by Non-Governmental Organisations. This means that applicants must be not-for-profit making organisations, completely independent from other entities (in particular public organisations), primarily active on the field of environment protection and/or climate change, operate at a national level (for UK, PL, DE, IT, FR, ES it is possible for NGOs operating at regional level to apply to the call). 

Proposals can be proposed by one sole organisation (partnerships are not necessary for this call). Projects must be co-founded for at least the 40% of the total cost. 60% of the total eligible cost can be funded at the maximum by LIFE Programme. EU funding cannot be more than 300.000 EUR awarded as lump sum for single project.

Regarding to the evaluation process, it will end with a final list of proposals recommended for funding established with due consideration to geographical balance ensuring that at least the best passing proposal per UE Member State will be included. 

The evaluation criteria that will be used for the assessment of the projects will be three: 

  • AW1: Technical coherence and quality of the proposal in relation to the specific need addressed; 
  • AW2: Comprehensiveness and relevance of the approach in relation to the needs identified; 
  • AW3: Financial coherence and quality (including value for money) Applications must be presented using specific forms made publicly available, where contents must be filled in limited text.
