A new direction for FLAGs 

The reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP), job creation and the fight against poverty, climate change and the energy transition, blue growth and coastal development, and a participatory approach to local development combining different funding opportunities (multi-funding) – these are just some of the very diverse challenges and opportunities FLAGs must consider as they prepare their strategies for the next six years.

Focus: FARNET sets sail

Report on the “Sailing Towards 2020” conference
(Brussels, 2-3 March 2015).

Report: A slice of the cake 

Fishermen in the popular tourist destinations of Larnaca and Famagusta in Cyprus are using Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) to improve their skills, and the quality of their products and services, in order to benefit more from the local tourism market.

Special insert: The FARNET Experience

A summary of local development in coastal and fisheries areas.

Report: ‘Boys ashore’

Community-led local development is a well-established practice in Hastings, England (UK). Incorporating fishermen into the process was a new departure, however, which has now been achieved thanks to Axis 4 of the EFF.

FARNET Managing Authorities meeting 27-28.04.2015

The theme of the FARNET Managing Authorities/National Networks meeting on 27-28 April 2015 was “Getting the new FLAGs off the ground”. In particular, it dealt with exchanges around capacity building tools and methods. The meeting included an update from DG Mare on the state of play with regards to the EMFF Operational Programmes and an overview of new cooperation opportunities in the future. The meeting also involved a “Tool Fair”, in which the MAs and NNs each presented a capacity building tool or activity carried out or planned in their country to support the future round of FLAGs. A further session was dedicated to designing a first national kick-off meting for the new FLAGs, making use of the information and tools presented previously at the “Tool Fair”. The participants also had the opportunity to discuss the priorities for FARNET in 2014-2020 and the type of support MAs required in the future in order to be more effective in implementing fisheries CLLD.

Sailing Towards 2020: Axis 4 in Action

This brochure has been developed for the "Sailing towards 2020" event, it highlights facts, figures and success stories from the 2007/2013 Axis4 program of the European Fisheries Fund. Stakeholders (FLAGs, Managing Authorities, project promoters) may use it as a source of inspiration for future projects; but it will also interest wider audiences, such as researchers, NGOs and/or the media wanting to know more on local development of European fisheries areas.

Designing the future

As we shift our focus to the next programming period, it is increasingly clear that new solutions and new thinking are required to address evolving challenges. Even where FLAGs have been successful in achieving their goals in the 2007-2013 period, they will still have to reassess their situation and prepare new strategies that respond to the changing external environment,the new legislative framework, and take account of their own evolving capacity and maturity as agents of local development.

"Sailing Towards 2020" conference: Brussels, 2 & 3 March 2015

 


Click to playOver 450 stakeholders, including FLAGs, Managing Authorities, fisheries organisations and NGOs, involved in the sustainable development of coastal and fisheries areas took part in DG MARE’s high level event in Brussels, “Sailing Towards 2020”. The event brought together delegates from 27 different countries, including political leaders from the local, regional and national level, as well as Members of the European Parliament and representatives from the European Council’s Presidency and the Commission.

Opened by Mr. Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and organised with the assistance of the FARNET Support Unit, the conference offered an opportunity to witness first-hand the results of 42 local projects supported by Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) and to explore the potential for Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) to face new challenges in coastal and fisheries communities.
