The FLAG area is situated in the north of Croatia near the border with Slovenia and close to Italy. The area’s key industries are tourism and other services, agriculture and fishing, focusing mainly on sardines and anchovy; there are also two aquaculture farms producing shellfish.
The Djursland FLAG is looking to learn from other FLAG areas in order to develop projects to improve the sales price of local seafood, ideally in contexts similar with its fisheries communities (small-scale, Baltic/North Sea coastal fisheries).
This handbook is for LAGs and FLAGs funded from one or several of the four ESI Funds as well as external evaluators carrying out LAG evaluations. It aims to provide easy-to-use tools and methods, along with examples from different LAGs and FLAGs, that can serve as guidance and inspiration for evaluating Community-led Local Development (CLLD).
The Halland FLAG would like to come in touch with FLAG projects to cooperate with, related to adding value to fisheries by diversification of products, new activities and tourism.
Thanks to the collaboration between two FLAGs, French and Italian fishing and shellfish operators will be improving their capacity to adapt their activities to environmental and market trends, ensuring the economic viability of Mediterranean fisheries.
This guide is designed mainly for FLAGs seeking to improve linkages between aquaculture producers and other actors in their areas in an effort to boost societal acceptance and consumer perceptions of aquaculture, while also bearing in mind, and responding to, the great diversity of the aquaculture sector.
Good Practice Project
Latvian FLAGs teamed up in a cooperation project to finance a study aimed at assessing the seaweed production potential from Latvian waters along with options for a management plan that would ensure a sustainable exploitation of this resource.
Good Practice Project
Exchange between businesses from three countries helps raise skills of local entrepreneurs, develop new products and encourage young people to engage in business activities.
Good Practice Method
The Regional Government of Galicia offers an inspirational example of how to plan CLLD implementation in advance to ensure FLAGs remain operational from one programming period to another. This has helped to safeguard the local dynamic and credibility built up by the FLAGs and ensure funds are quickly available for new projects in the new period.
Good Practice Short Story
FLAG supports the setting up of an organisation to encourage and facilitate job sharing between local oyster farming activities and the fishing sector.
