FARNET Guide #13: Social inclusion for vibrant fishing communities

This guide aims to help FLAGs identify and effectively address social exclusion in fisheries areas. It is intended primarily for Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) managers and board members as well as local actors involved in social activities. It could also be of help to managing authorities and national networks that are supporting FLAGs in dealing with social inclusion issues.

The factsheets in Part A cover four types of issues typically found in FLAG areas:

● finding alternative/complementary livelihoods in fisheries communities
● generational renewal in the fisheries sector
● inclusion of vulnerable groups in fisheries communities
● integrating migrants and refugees.

In Part B, the factsheets focus on solutions addressing issues in FLAG areas, in particular:

● linking social inclusion to enterprise
● building strategic partnerships with other actors
● integrating social inclusion in animation and operating procedures of the FLAG.

The guide is available to download below in the following languages: EN, DE, ES, FR, IT, PL and RO.
