FARNET Managing Authorities meeting 17-18.09.2012

The meeting was focused on getting ready for the “double challenge” of the nearest months in the context of implementation of the EFF: getting the best results out of the present funding period while preparing to take the opportunities offered in the proposals for the future period. After the introduction and the discussion of key tasks and milestones to be completed with regard to the present and future programming periods, the results of thematic case studies carried out in 9 countries were presented; these case studies looked at the role of the FLAG in relation to the fisheries sector, to other development actors in the area and in the delivery chain. The following sessions focused on drawing lessons from the present period in order to improve the delivery systems for the future. The participants had also the opportunity to discuss how the delivery systems impact the practice on the ground, on the basis of the analysis of projects approved by the FLAGs from several countries.
