What is Axis 4?


An introduction to Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund                                            
The Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) provides support for the sustainable development of fisheries areas. It supports measures to promote economic diversification and an improved quality of life in areas affected by a decline in fishing activities. An important innovation in the implementation of Axis 4 is the emphasis on the territorial approach, which encourages a focus on specific areas and seeks to mobilise local actors from all sectors: public, private and civil society, to work together as FLAGs (Fisheries Local Action Groups) to design and implement integrated local development strategies.
