Biogas Wipptal and Life+ Projekt

The LIFE+ programme finances projects that contribute to the development and implementation of environmental policy and legislation. In particular, this programme facilitates the integration of environmental issues into other policies, and, more generally, it contributes to sustainable development. The LIFE+ programme replaces a number of financial instruments used for environmental policy such as the LIFE programme which preceded it.
