On 4 March 2021, the webinar Financing connectivity: Building the Trans-European Nature Network took place online from 09:00 to 13:35 CET.
This event was the opportunity to learn more about the Biodiversity Strategy’s ambitious objective to enlarge the network of protected areas to complete a Trans-European Nature Network.
During this webinar, speakers presented financing opportunities for connectivity currently available through a number of European Union funds and programmes, including: the Green Deal Investment Plan, Horizon Europe, funding under the common agricultural policy, European Regional Development Fund and Interreg Europe. Market-based mechanisms, public-private investments, corporate social responsibility and crowd-funding have been presented by an expert panel from the public, private and third sectors.

What is the LIFE programme?
Since 1992, the LIFE programme has been instrumental in establishing the Natura 2000 network, the world’s largest multinational co-ordinated network of protected areas.
As a result, the LIFE community of nature restoration practitioners has practical experience to share on how best to select priority corridor areas to increase ecological connectivity across European landscapes, and deliver multiple benefits for nature, climate and people. Projects under the LIFE programme have piloted different governance models and funding options for ecological corridors.
