Strengthening the effectiveness of local action groups

Sep 24, 2021 | News

(24 September 2021) – The FARNET Support Unit, co-managed by AEIDL, recently published a new guide: ‘Fit for the future – A guide for effective FLAGs’.


The single most important factor determining the success of a local development strategy is the skills and motivation of the FLAG (Fishery Local Action Group) team.

The role of the FLAG is not limited to delivering grants; its value added depends above all on its capacity to mobilise and empower the local community to bring about positive change in the area.

This practical handbook offers different tools for improving FLAG work and aims to build the capacity of FLAG employees and volunteers to fulfill the different tasks envisaged in the EU programme.
