FARNET GUIDE #23: Resilient coastal communities: A guide for FLAGs

The global COVID-19 pandemic which started in 2020 has undoubtedly had a large impact on fisheries and aquaculture communities. There are other, less dramatic challenges that can also create real difficulties for these communities, such as depopulation, climate change, economic fluctuations and more. Local communities need to be prepared, flexible and plan for the future – they need to be resilient. This Guide aims to offer FLAGs ideas and inspiration to help their areas become more resilient, socially, environmentally and economically, making strategic use of technology and the opportunities of digitalisation for better communication and governance processes.
