Dalmatian Islands, Croatia

The Learning Area on Dalmatian Islands, Croatia, encompasses territories of LAG Škoji, LAG Brač and LAG 5, covering the area from Dubrovnik-West Coast in Dubrovnik-Neretva County to the island of Šolta in Split-Dalmatia County.

Farming is dominated by permanent crops (olives, figs, caroub, almonds), but also supports remnants of pastoral systems as well as cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants.

The key issues faced by the area are: agricultural and rural development policies, abandonment and "reconquest" of marginal Mediterranean lands. The area is a ground for local action group activities and successful participatory projects.
