The LIFE TogetherFor1.5 is a Pan-European project which aims to align the EU’s climate action with the 1.5°C objective of the Paris Agreement, building on climate and energy policy opportunities at the national and EU level.
The aim of the project is to contribute to support the efficient use of EU money in the participating countries, highlight best practices and ‘lessons learnt’, and widely disseminate these observations both nationally and internationally. Thus, the project will help to improve the level and quality of EU funding and fiscal policy for EU climate action and EGD delivery by focusing on the game-changing actions at the national level.
