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.
Number of FLAGs in Cyprus: 3
