The Mostiștea river is a tributary of the river Danube in Romania. The river source is near the village Dascălu, northeast of Bucharest and it flows into the Danube near Mânăstirea. The local economy of the area is predominantly agricultural. Fisheries and aquaculture activities are small-scale and often combined with agri-tourism and recreational activities.
Key challenges faced by the FLAG area include:
There are two protected areas in the FLAG territory which are both in the Natura 2000 network. They are the Valea Mostiştea (Special Protection Area) which covers an area of 44km2 and the Olteniţa - Mostiştea - Chiciu (Site of Community Interest) covering 119km2.
The FLAGs local development strategy aims to increase the standards of living in its local communities. Another key objective is increasing employment opportunities through the diversification of fisheries activities. The strategy aims to achieve these objectives while also preserving the ecological interests of the area, its cultural heritage, and its fisheries traditions.
Project ideas for the FLAG will be focused on the following themes:
The FLAG will make regular calls for projects with fixed deadlines. Calls for projects are posted on the FLAG website
The FLAG has experience in community development at a local and micro-regional level. It would like to share this expertise with other CLLD groups. The FLAG is interested in cooperation related to integrated local development processes.
FLAG members include the 12 territorial administrative units from its local communes (Frasinet, Gurbanesti, Ileana, Luica, Lupsanu, Nana, Nicolae Balcesu, Sarulesti, Tamadau Mare, Valea Argovei), 14 fisheries and aquaculture businesses, an NGO focused on social inclusion and gender equality, and two rural development associations
