The traditional activities of fishing and marine farming and agriculture are strong images of the identity of island and coastal territories.
The LandSea Project is developed from the shared observation of a lack of capacity of the territories and their actors to promote traditional activities of the land and sea.
In all the territories covered by the project (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Spain, France, Greece, and Italy), initiatives have been carried out to promote only local rural products, but the producers have only benefited from communication support and not from the capacity building.
This lack of skills has been identified as a factor of weak local initiatives and higher value-added activities. Faced with the increasing ageing of local fisheries and aquaculture actors and the low attractiveness of these jobs, particularly for young people, it is necessary to strengthen their capacities and the ones of actors in the land and sea sectors in order to encourage innovation and the creation of new income-generating activities.
The project responds to unmet needs in the project territories in terms of capacity building for actors, particularly in terms of promotion and involvement in the territories.
