Launching community led local development CLLD post 2020


The European Commission, Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) recently published new document: Launching community-led local development (CLLD) post-2020

CLLD or “community-led local development” is a bottom-up approach to socio-economic development that brings local people together to decide how they want to improve their area. They do so by setting up partnerships of civil society, businesses and public bodies, called Local Action Groups (LAGs) or, in the fisheries context, often called fisheries LAGs or “FLAGs”.

In 2014-2020, under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, CLLD was applied as an effective approach to addressing a range of challenges facing fisheries and aquaculture communities across the EU. Under the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF), 2021-2027, coastal areas once again have the opportunity to launch – or re-launch – CLLD.
