Investment area 5.1 biodiversity, nature recovery and resilience

This investment area will promote cross-border co-operation to facilitate the recovery of selected habitats and species across the Programme Area. 


It presents an opportunity to build upon INTERREG VA Programme by continuing to promote crossborder co-operation and facilitating the recovery of additional protected habitats and priority species. Investment will be directed towards further delivery of conservation actions proven to redress biodiversity loss and preserve these important environmental, social and economic assets.

The key objective of this IA is to ‘enhance nature protection and biodiversity and reduce pollution’, resulting in an increase in the surface area of selected habitats and habitats for species in improving condition. An indicative budget allocation has been set at €40 million for this Investment Area

Priority Areas

As part of this pre-development support the two jurisdictions have worked together to identify the areas, actions, and target species/populations which would benefit the most from Programme Support. These are based on need, on the policy priorities in the region, and on what we have learned from past Programmes. The priority list below provides specific populations and places where applicants should focus their attention in the development of project proposals and actions.
