B4Life: United for Biodiversity
The EU Biodiversity for Life (B4Life) flagship initiative is designed to help the poorest countries protect ecosystems, combat wildlife crime and develop green economies. B4Life is financed from the EU Global Public Goods and Challenges (GPGC) Thematic Program and regional and national development cooperation envelopes of the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI), European Development Fund (EDF) and European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).
In line with the EU’s Agenda for Change, B4Life will focus on Least Developed Countries and countries containing “biodiversity hotspots”, places where ecosystems and their services are richest but also most threatened.
B4Life operates in three priority areas:
- Promoting good governance of natural resources.
- Securing healthy ecosystems for food security.
- Developing nature-based solutions towards a green economy.
