The key financing instruments are those for the environment (LIFE+), the EU's research and innovation funding programme (Horizon 2020) and the programme to assist enterprises and SMEs (COSME). In addition, the European Investment Bank can mobilise its financing tools and expertise in support of suitable projects in order to further the Action Plan's priorities.

EU funds that are co-managed by the Member States (the so-called structural funds: the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the European Fund for Regional Development, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Social Fund) can also be put to use in the implementation of the Action Plan. Operational programmes are being developed at national and regional level for the implementation of these funds. It will be important that they also take account of the Atlantic Action Plan.
