The Green Fund supports the LIFE ARCPROM project
The partners of LIFE ARCPROM (LIFE18 NAT / GR / 000768) would like to thank the Board of Directors of the Green Fund, who with decision No. 181.1 / 2020, is going to cover part of the financial obligations of the project. LIFE ARCPROM aims at improving human-bear coexistence in four National Parks of S.Europe, three in Greece and one in Italy. The project started in October 2019 and will last for 5 years.
Partners of the project are four National Parks (Prespa, Northern Pindos, Rhodope Mountain range and Majella), two universities (the ones of Thessaly and of Western Macedonia), and two environmental organizations (Callisto and WWF Italy). The project is co-financed by 75% by the EU’s LIFE program , the Green Fund and the partners’ own resources, while the total budget is € 2,786,497. With this decision, the Green Fund will cover € 20,000.
The Green Fund’s contribution to co-financing the project, under extremely difficult economic conditions, proves once again that it is a really valuable financial tool in the efforts to protect the Greek environment.
In the last four years, the Green Fund has made significant contributions to the implementation of the national and European environmental policy, both with the co-financing of LIFE projects and with the financial support of Management Authorities of Protected Areas (National Parks), and also with supporting innovative actions.
