Of these, two focus on environmental innovation, six on nature conservation and biodiversity, three on information and communication and eight on capacity building. These projects represent a total investment of €17 million, of which €10.2 million has been contributed by the EU.

 
To date, one project under LIFE programme's new project categories, has been co-financed by the EU. It is a Technical Assistance project establishing an integrated framework in support of the implementation of Malta’s second River Basin Management Plan, the project’s total budget amounts to €0.9 million, of which the EU contributes €0.5 million.

  • LIFE Arcipelagu Garnija

This project aims to ensure the long-term recovery of the species in the central Mediterranean islands of Malta, by increasing the knowledge of colony sites, number of breeding pairs and reproductive output, and prevalent terrestrial threats; reduce the direct and indirect human-caused threats by managing them through informed concrete conservation actions; increase the number of breeding pairs by approximately 10% and the reproductive output of the majority of the breeding colonies by 25%; and tackle the targets of relevant policies, such as Malta’s National Strategy and Biodiversity Action Plan (2014-2020), Marine Strategy Framework Directive, Birds Directive and the Integrated Monitoring Programme of the Barcelona Convention.


This project represents a total investment of €1,261,940.00, of which € 757,220.00 has been contributed by the EU.
