Project examples - Environment, culture & society

FLAGs can create both the physical and the human conditions required for sustainable development in their areas by linking fisheries with the three main pillars of sustainable development: environment, culture and society. Many of the actions FLAGS can take in this field are valuable in their own right but they also permit local communities to organise their natural, cultural and social “assets” in a way that creates economic opportunities and jobs at a later stage. However, in the first instance, many of these kinds of investments are “premarket” or “non-productive” and are mostly financed by public funds.
