Chisinau, 15 December /MOLDPRES/ - Moldova will conclude an Association Agreement with the European Union on the country’s participation in the Programme for Environment and Climate Action (LIFE). The parliament voted for the agreement’s ratification today.

With its participation in the LIFE programme, Moldova will be able to benefit from the financing of more projects, which regard the biodiversity, circular economy, transition to the clean energy, as well as the adaptation to climate. The proposals of projects will be able to be submitted by public entities, private enterprises, NGOs or civil society organizations.
