An investment worth €160.6 million (£112.4m) will be made to support environmental projects across Europe.

The cash from the European Commission will fund 96 programmes worth €264.8 million (£185.3m).

Under the LIFE programme for the Environment, they will focus on resource efficiency, the transition to a more circular and sustainable economy, nature and biodiversity and environmental governance and information.

Karmenu Vella, EU Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries said: “Money invested in environment projects is money well spent. As well as protecting and enhancing natural capital, there are many promising avenues here that will help steer Europe towards a low carbon, resource efficient and sustainable future. We will follow these projects carefully, with a view to sharing and replicating their success.”
