Technical assistance service for proposals “BioClima”

Regione Lombardia grants non-repayable capital funding to the managing bodies of protected areas and Natura 2000 sites and to public administrations for the realization of interventions of biodiversity conservation, adaptation to climate change and enhancement of ecosystem services of forests, protected areas and ecological networks in Lombardy, through the involvement of the private sector.

Do you want to contribute to a nature positive future?

Climate change is only one of the pressures driving the nature crisis. We must adopt an integrated approach to also address changes in land, freshwater and marine use, direct exploitation of natural resources, pollution, invasive alien species, biological disturbances, and other key drivers of nature loss.
