The Environment and Climate Action Program (LIFE) is the financial instrument of the European Union dedicated to the environment for the period 2014-2020. Its general objective is to catalyze changes in the development and implementation of policies through the contribution of solutions and best practices to achieve environmental and climate goals, as well as through the promotion of innovative technologies in the field of environment and climate change . It must also support the application of the General Environment Program of the Union until 2020 "Living well, respecting the limits of our planet".

The LIFE Program is managed by the European Commission, being the National Authority in the Spanish State the Ministry for the Ecological Transition, through the Undersecretariat. LIFE is a program managed by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises (EASME).
