In 2007 the European Commission launched a new approach aimed at addressing some of the challenges facing fisheries-dependent communities. Between 2007 and 2013, 312 local multi-actor partnerships referred to as Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs) were formed in 21 Member States. These groups were able, for the first time, to use the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) to promote local development.

The challenge for these groups was to create new opportunities for jobs and growth by launching alternative or complementary activities. This approach is known as Axis 4 of the EFF.

For the 2014-2020 period, this approach has been extended to cover all European Structural and Investment Funds under the umbrella of Community-Led Local Development (CLLD)
