The Cypriot LIFE NCP and the LIFE Cyclamen team organised a short Info Event for Officers of the Cyprus Forestry Department, on Friday November 2nd 2018 in Nicosia.
During the event the LIFE Programme and its two subprogrammes – Environment and Climate Action – were presented, while stressing the thematic priorities related to the Forestry Department, as per the LIFE Multiannual Work Programme 2018-2020. In addition, special reference was made on the different services the National Contact Point (NCP) offers to applicants and beneficiaries of ongoing projects. Moreover, some communication tips were shared with the purpose of increasing the effectiveness of the communication actions included in LIFE Projects. Lastly, the new way of submitting LIFE proposals for the Environment sub-programme following a 2 Stage approach was explained.
Participants had the opportunity to hear about related LIFE Projects that were carried out in other EU countries. Following the examples, participants were able to discuss Actions that could possibly be replicated in Cyprus, while dealing with our local specificities.
The LIFE Cyclamen team will be in close contact with the Forestry Department, which has a long history under the LIFE Programme, and will provide all Officers with any assistance they might need.
