Area

The FLAG area is a mostly rural area located in the north-eastern part of Kujawsko-Pomorskie region, along the valley of the Drwęca river. There is a long tradition of lake fishing. The key challenges include high levels of unemployment (including a high number of people with low skills and people over 50 and long-term unemployed) and low level of economic activity. The natural potential of the area, especially along the lakes, is not sufficiently utilised and the infrastructure that would facilitate access by tourists is in a poor condition.

Type de zone:
Bassins:
Protected areas: 

Over 52% of the FLAG area is protected, there are two landscape parks and two areas of protected landscape as well as 12 natural reserves with a total area of 680 ha.
