Cooperation MS Fiche
Cooperation is strongly encouraged in Cyprus, both at the inter-territorial and the transnational level. The call for FLAG strategies included a specific section for cooperation plans and all three Cypriot FLAGs, therefore, received provisional approval of their cooperation proposals when selected.
An inter-territorial project between the three Cypriot FLAGs foresees a promotional campaign for fisheries products around the island; and a transnational project with Greece will continue cooperation initiated in the 2007-2014 period around the promotion of diving parks in the region. Cypriot FLAGs are also open to other cooperation ideas and no specific themes have been set at national level.
A total budget of €440 000 has been allocated for FLAG cooperation in Cyprus – with the possibility of transferring further funds from the FLAG strategies at a later stage, if necessary.
Those interested in further information or in collaborating with Cypriot FLAGs can contact Natasa Pappouli from the Department of Fisheries and Maritime Research which acts as the National Fisheries Network: firstname.lastname@example.org
