FARNET GUIDE #18: Smart Coastal Areas: A guide for FLAGs

The aim of this guide is to give Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs) an introduction to the concept of ‘smart coastal areas’ in the context of these five key themes, providing technical advice and practical examples of how they can encourage and support smarter initiatives in their areas. This guide is based on the experiences of FLAGs themselves, the existing initiatives across EU coastal areas – and outside the EU when particularly relevant – and on the discussions held at the FARNET seminar on the topic.
