(26 April 2021) – The latest guide produced by the FARNET Support Unit, co-managed by AEIDL, aims to help Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs) transfer their strategies into projects which make a real difference.
As FLAGs work on their local development strategies for the 2021-2027 period, many will focus on the ‘next step’ of CLLD implementation in their area, ensuring that good strategies transfer into meaningful action on the ground.
Following on from the FARNET guide on ‘Forward-looking Strategies for Fisheries Areas’, this guide aims to help FLAGs transfer their strategies into projects which make a real difference to fisheries, aquaculture and coastal communities.
Using the case study of five FLAGs across the EU, each chapter highlights how the FLAG has selected projects which contribute to its strategic objectives related to a particular theme.
The new guide projects tools for identifying quality and provides inspiration on the types of projects FLAGs may want to foster, as well as drawing lessons and tips from these examples regarding the conditions for a successful project.
