    - Cooperation MS Fiche
    Cooperation is strongly encouraged by the programme authorities in France and FLAGs were required to lay out their plans for cooperation within their local development strategies in their bid to gain EMFF funding. In some cases, cooperation is viewed as a transversal tool to strengthen the impact of all areas of FLAG work and, in other cases, cooperation is programmed as an area of work in its own right with specific objectives.

    Microcredit for small-scale fishermen

    17/01/2017
    - Good Practice Project
    Fishermen often find it difficult to obtain loans. Because they do not always fit the standard profile of a borrower, they can be categorised as ‘non-bankable’. Recent discussions with the local fishermen made clear the need for the FLAG to provide them with a more accessible credit system to help fund their initiatives.
  • FI - FLAG Cooperation in Finland

    30/12/2016
    - Cooperation MS Fiche
    FLAG cooperation in Finland’s EMFF programme is considered to be a way of bringing new ideas and innovations to the country in order to address some specific challenges. In particular, cooperation is sought to increase the profitability of small-scale coastal fisheries and make the sector attractive as a career for young people, as well as combatting the issues posed by seals and cormorants in fishing communities. However, cooperation is not limited and other ideas and networking can be developed among the FLAGs.
