This Specific Objective is aimed at the protection of the environment and its eco-systems. In particular, the Programme is looking to fund more effective and efficient management of the environment. The aim is to support the people and economy of the Programme Area through the realisation of benefits such as protection against environmental risks (e.g mitigating the impact of climate change), and better public health from a protected environment. This includes management of ecosystem services.
