Brief Profile and experience in the relative field of action:
Cyclades represent a unique and diverse group of islands in Greece where the problems of unsustained
growth become particularly evident. These islands are characterized by small surface area, limited
natural resources, rich cultural heritage, a natural and built environment of unique value, limited
administrative and organizational capacity, weak access to technological applications and innovation
and intense tourism development which threatens the fragile balance between economy, society and
environment.

Limited natural resources: specifically, water resources are inadequate either due to low precipitation
which when coupled with geological particularities and increased demand during summer months leads
to rather acute problems. The above constraint along with soil erosion and limited land resources
further impedes the development of the primary sector.
Rich cultural heritage. The islands possess a unique heritage with important archaeologic and Byzantine
monuments, not to mention local traditions and customs.
Natural and built environment of unique value: the islands host important ecosystems as well as
endemic species of fauna and flora. The unique architectural style and their traditional settlements are
well known, which along with the landscape are considered as major tourist attractions.
Major deficiencies in respect to technical infrastructure and services. A critical problem for the
development of the islands, mainly of the small ones, is the inadequate communication between the
islands and between the islands and the mainland.
Limited administrative and organizational capacity not allowing the effective confrontation of problems
and, mainly, of pressures derived from unplanned tourism development.
Intense tourism development: since 1970, tourism presents a major source of income for local
communities. The inefficient infrastructure, the illegal constructions and the ineffective management of
visitors flow comprise major constraints for sustainable tourism development.

Prefecture of Cyclades is the administrative and managing authority for these islands. The population of
the prefecture according the last census carried out in 2001 is 111.181 inhabitants. The prefecture of
Cyclades constitute 23 big and small islands. Although some of the big islands like Paros, Naxos,
Mykonos, Andros, Santorini etc. are very well developed and have relatively good infrastructure most of
the small islands are isolated from the capital of the Prefecture and do not even have the basic
infrastructure. The Prefecture has taking into account all these an in cooperation with the South
Aegean Region Authority has implemented and participated in a number of European Projects.
Some of these projects are described in more detail below:
THISEAS is a project applying different prolepsis programmes in primary education. It is a programme
which is applied by all local government bodies in Greece. The Project THISEAS in Cyclades has
implemented until now a lot of programmes in primary schools of many islands and more than 200
teachers have participated. The aim of these programmes is the prevention and prolepsis of the social
problem of young people to drugs addiction.
The Prefecture has also implemented an integrated actions for women aiming in equal access to labour
market. The project aims in a few words to strengthen the employment possibilities and opportunities
and improve the access and participation of women in labour market.
Natura 2000 – Milos is a project aiming in effective protection and promotion of natural resources and
species of the Milos’ areas which belong to Natura 2000.
Prefecture of Cyclades ia also a founding partner of the Vocational Training Institute of Cyclades which
implements many projects in employment, environment and social cohesion.

Brief Profile and experience in the relative field of action:

The Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania (MAICh) is a constituent Institute of the International
Centre of Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM). The Center is an intergovernmental
organization (thirteen member States) whose purpose is to develop and progress in scientific co-
operation by providing post graduate education, research and applications in the fields of economics,
management, and applied biological, technological and environmental sciences, as related to
Mediterranean Rural Areas. The ultimate scope is the strengthening of the agricultural sector via the
exploitation of the local human and capital resources of the agricultural areas of the Mediterranean
Basin. The Institute maintains close links with academics and prestigious Higher Education and
Research Institutions in Europe and North America, thus a number of students arrive from
Mediterranean countries to pursue and further their education at MAICh.
The activities undertaken by MAICh are related to all or some Mediterranean Countries and support the
Euro-Mediterranean relation. More specifically, MAICh organises specialised courses and seminars, both
at the Institute itself and in the third countries of the Mediterranean and Balkan regions. It further
coordinates research networks in European and Mediterranean countries that address high priority
topics and contributes to regional and local development through innovative actions that represent E.U.
initiatives or regulations (ECOS-OVERTURE, Article 8, FEOGA, etc.). Finally, the Institute implements
Euro-Mediterranean Partnership Cooperation programmes (AIDCO in the MEDA programme).
Moreover, MAICh is involved in the establishment of research and training networks as well as in the
design and development of databases and modern training tools.
The Department of Agricultural Economics of MAICh carries out postgraduate teaching and is involved in
research in the areas of: (1) Sustainable development; (2) Application of modern operational
management methodologies and economics theory to agricultural market situations within the frame of
the Common Agricultural Policy; (3) Market research and quality product promotion.
Some of the research activities that we are involved during the last three years are:

           ● Setting up and implementation of sustainable and multifunctional rural development model
  based on organic and competitive agriculture (SIMOCA), INTERREG III B, CADSES
  The general objective of the project is to define a new strategy for sustainable and multifunctional rural
  development based on the growth of organic farming.
  The structure of the project is divided into 5 work packages:
    WP1. Building up of a common trans-national knowledgebase and permanent communication-networking
  system;
    WP2. Elaboration of best-practice models on farm and catchments levels for multifunctional and organic
  agriculture in selected areas;
    WP3. Implementation of the Best-Practice Model in selected case study areas (Pilot actions);
    WP4. Setting up and validation of a trans-national strategy for a sustainable and multifunctional rural
  development strategy;
    WP5. Awareness of, capacity building training, and dissemination with innovative systems.
           ● Tools for evaluating investment in the Mediterranean Mountain Areas – An integrated
  framework for sustainable development (MEDMONT XI Research and Technology)
  This research program develops an integrated methodological framework to support ex ante and ex post
  investment evaluation and monitoring decision support tools for integrated sustainable development projects and
  plans in the mountain areas of the Mediterranean region. The framework integrates tools (indicators) through: i) a
  natural resource base and capability evaluation for forestry, grazing, agriculture, wildlife, tourism and water/soil, ii)
  a social and economic evaluation iii) an institutional evaluation and iv) an integrated evaluation based on Multiple
  Criteria Analysis.
           ● Market and Trade Policies for Mediterranean Agriculture: The case of fruit/vegetables and
  olive oil (MEDFROL), EU 6th Framework for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration /
  Specific Targeted Research
  The project analyses the macroeconomic environment and agricultural sectors of the thirteen Mediterranean, non-
  EU countries, namely Malta, Turkey, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Cyprus, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, Israel, Gaza
  Strip and West Bank, Jordan. Although the analysis covers all the main commodities of the investigated regions,
  particular emphasis is placed on their fruit and vegetables and olive oil production, since these products are among
  the most important commodities produced in these countries and provide the most significant contribution to the
  national economies.
  The main objectives of the project are to assess these countries' future potential by taking into account the ongoing
  liberalisation of their economies and the strengthening of their economic relations with the EU and to evaluate
  potential impacts both on the EU as a whole, as well as on individual Member States that produce competitive
  products. Therefore, certain EU countries will also be included in the study for comparison and forecasting reasons.
  In order to fully capitulate on the future potential of the fruit and vegetable (fresh and processed) and olive oil
  sectors of these nations, the EU market’s import demand will also be accounted for.
           ● Agricultural Trade Agreement (TRADEAG), EU 6th Framework for Research, Sustainable
  Management of Europe’s Natural Resources / Specific Targeted Research
  The objective of the project is to provide information, expertise and operational instruments to policy makers
  involved in trade negotiations and agricultural policy design. The expected outputs include: a set of detailed data
  bases on EU25 tariffs, barriers, trade, including those under preferential agreements; similar databases for selected
  countries; a critical review of existing instruments and analyses; analyses of agricultural trade, tariffs, quotas under
  preferential agreements; indicators of openness of the EU25 and other developed countries; a general equilibrium
  model to simulate the impact of trade preferential policy schemes and the effect of multilateral negotiations on
  trade flows and welfare; an original modelling tool to simulate the impact of trade agreements on the EU25
  common market organizations; several sector/region focused partial equilibrium tools; an analysis of the
  effectiveness of EU25 trade agreements for developing countries, and a comparison with the preferential treatment
  granted by the US in the case of Africa; prospective analyses of possible future agreements with Mercosur, Russia
  and their effects on the agricultural sector the EU25; case studies like the impact of deepening the Euro
  Mediterranean and Balkans agreement on specific EU25 regions and sectors (e.g. fruits and vegetables); an
  analysis of the effects of future multilateral agreements on existing preferential trade schemes of the EU25.

           ● The green Enterprises, EU Youthstart Programme
  This project planned to design and materialize a broad support framework for the employment initiatives of young
  people in the sectors of Cultural and Nature Tourism, and to develop permanent structures which will enable the
  promulgation and dissemination of the results when the program has been completed. Certain mountainous regions
  of Crete are selected as areas of application
           ● The greenways project: Youth Initiation for development of Green Tourism, EU Youthstart Programme
  This project concerned the development of appropriate tools to provide young people, which are the target group of
  the project, with the information and the training required for their involvement as professionals in the world of
  eco-and/or hiking tourism. More specifically MAICh is involved in the development of the educational tools aimed at
  the training and positioning of the trainees in several jobs, and will result in the development of maps appropriate
  for hiking and maps for the professional education of those attending the program for the leaders.

Agrotouristiki S.A. is a public interest company and its major shareholder is the Hellenic Tourism Development Co., which is
controlled by the Ministry of Tourism.
Agrotouristiki S.A. aims to contribute actively to the development of an alternative proposal against the resulting crisis of mass
tourism, by the promotion of rural development and the introduction of a new, contemporary tourist product.
The Company's general scope is to respond to today's demands for a comprehensive policy in the conception and management of
a developmental and promotional framework for rural development and agrotourism in Greece. In other words, to create a vehicle
for the promotion and development of "alter Greece", by establishing a national reference framework to issues relating to
agrotourism-rural tourism.
The Company's particular goals are:


        The mobilisation of the production, cultural, tourist, and development bodies in Greece aiming at the development of
         rural areas
        The extension of the tourism period in Greece
        To allow for better understanding of the potential of agrotourism-rural tourism, and to attract prospective investors to
         turn to this sector, by offering responsible and effective guidelines as to the course they need to take in the form of
         information and practical advice.
        To foster the practical usage of "agrotourism" and "alternative forms of tourism" which, despite their widespread usage,
         often result in being applied wrongly.
        To establish agrotourism-rural tourism as a recognizable quality tourist product of mild development, in the provision of
         high quality services.
        To increase the potential of the Greek countryside through the expansion of agrotourism and its contribution to the
         preservation of the natural environment, civilization, and tradition, for the purpose of ultimately boosting the local
         economies and societies.
        To create favorable conditions for the establishment of healthy and competitive businesses.
        To further develop an international network of interested parties in rural development and agrotourism aiming at
         knowledge exchanges and best practice adaptations.

39. TRANSNATIONAL CHARACTER OF THE PROJECT (a maximum of 1000 characters)
(Please refer to chapter 5 of the applicants’ manual for detailed instructions on how to fill in the field).
Both partnership and project architecture were conceived as a response to the goal of the project itself:
processing, testing and transferring a European sustainable development model for marginal territories
through the attraction of new residents.
The partnership is intended to be a sum total of all public bodies acting on different planning levels
(municipalities, mountain communities, provincial and regional authorities) within different territories
(mountain areas, insular and coat areas) and within different legal and political national frameworks
(Italy, Greece, Cyprus) with an eye to the confrontation with extra-European areas such as Palestine
and Turkey. The project architecture integrates model processing activities carried out by a
Transnational Expertise Committee and the validation of the model itself within different territorial
contexts (mountain areas, insular and coat areas) identified as sample areas.
It is only thanks to this transnational set-up and the comparison between political models and strategies
operating within very different prescriptive and social frameworks the transferability and the
applicability of the model developed within the European territory and, more in particular, in the
ARCHIMED area may be guaranteed.
The project also foresees the constant exchange of experiences and know-how both in the model
processing and post-testing feedback stage which will be carried out by the aforementioned
Transnational Expertise Committee and which wil be disseminated on the occasion of the foreseen
Transnational Workshops.
The foreseen network activities, aiming to establish a European network of receptive territories also
represents a further result only sustainable within a transnational framework.
The project proposal, although being originated from needs expressed by Italian territorial authorities
was carried out in view of the sharing of goals, tools and methods and foresees the establishment of
specific supernational managing bodies which will look after its shared implementation.


40. DOES THE PROJECT COMPLY WITH THE STRATEGY OF THE PROGRAMME? (a maximum of 500 characters)
The Project contributes to a more cohesive, balanced and socially and ecologically                             sustainable
development of the European territory, and of the ARCHIMED area in particular.
It adopts an innovative and integrated approach of transnational co-operation based on
attraction of new resident and investment policies through the enhancement of territorial potentials and
growth of quality and quantity of citizen and enterprise services.
It wants to give an answer to territorial issues concerning the depopulation of isolated areas and
the needs of a more harmonious growth between urban, mountain, insular and coast areas.



41. DOES THE PROJECT COMPLY WITH THE STRATEGY OF THE AXIS: (a maximum of 500 characters)
The project intends to devise strategies for spatial planning development aiming to the revitalization of
isolated areas and the decongestion of urban areas as it will provide at the same time an increase in job
opportunities, in particular, both for women and younger generations and an improvement of the
quantity and quality of services within marginal territories to the benefit of more disadvantaged people.


42. DOES THE PROJECT COMPLY WITH THE STRATEGY OF THE MEASURE: (a maximum of 500 characters)
The project foresaw the creation of city/town networks with the aim of responding to common
problems and increasing the appeal of isolated territories by putting a brake on the current
depopulation phenomena.
It, also intends to implement actions aiming to employ the role of the geographically isolated areas,
mountainous and insular areas, within the context of a modern socioeconomic system favouring the
decongestion of urban centres through the creation of life and job opportunities within isolated
territories.

43. NEEDS ADDRESSED BY THE PROJECT (a maximum of 2000 characters)
(Please refer to chapter 5 of the applicants’ manual for detailed instructions on how to fill in the field).
The studies carried out by the Commission for mountain and insular areas ( “Analyse de Régions
insulaires et des régions ultrapéripheriques de L’Union Européenne – Partie I Les territoires et les
régions insulaires” – Rappot final mars 2003 Contrat n2000.CE. 16.0.AT.118 ; « Le aree montane in
Europa : Analisi delle aree montane negli Stati Membri dell’UE, in quelli in adesione ed in altri paesi »)
emphasize a number of common critical endogenous and exogenous factors:
Demographics and active population:
    a. Declining demographic trend mainly in the active population areas
    b. Increase in average age
    c. Dearth of active and qualified human resources
    d. mismatch between a qualified labour supply and a poorly qualified labour demand
Economic structure and access to markets:
    a. A productive system strictly linked to traditional sectors (fishing, agriculture and stock raising)
    b. Logistic difficulties in accessing the markets
    c. Lack of enterprise services (set-up assistance, ICT, logistics)
    d. Lack of telecom networks
    e. Low implementation level within SMEs of innovative production and marketing systems (e-
        commerce)
    f. Low enhancement of the cultural and environmental heritage within a sustainable tourism
        framework
    g. Lack of SME networking
Access to public services:
    a. Increase in the demand for proximity services due to the ageing of the population
    b. Decrease in available resources due to the reduction of citizens (contributory base)
Environmental issues
    a. Fragile ecosystems endangered by hydrogeological risks in absence of human presence
    b. Indiscriminate exploitation of existing resources
The project intends to define an integrated and sustainable development model based on the
improvement of the appeal of territories through:
    - The implementation of Wireless systems aimed to increase the availability of proximity services
        (E-Health) and enterprise services (E-Commerce) and territorial management services (E-
        Governement)
    - Development territorial interventations with a bottom-up approach aiming to enhance the
        potentials of the territory and improve services.
    - Promotion, set-up and strengthening of SMEs in the sustainable tourism field
The improvement of the appeal of the territory according to a social and environmental compatibility
approach will favour within isolated areas the following:
      - Increase in demographic rates
      - Increase of GDP
Improvement of quantity and quality of services within urban areas
      - Lower demographic pressure
      - Enhancement of citizen services

GREECE
Agricultural and Regional Policies are the basic policies that mainly affect the mountains.
With Greece's accession into the European Union in 1981 and the implementation of the Common
Agricultural Policy, the application of the Directive 268/75 for the "mountainous and disadvantageous
areas" began. In this context, the income of farmers in these areas is subsidised in order to balance
their income. These policies aim at strengthening the agricultural income and at limiting migration.
According to the Regional Development Plan for 2000 – 2006 as presented by the Greek
authorities the main principles are
1) Development of human resources; 2) Basic infrastructures; 3) Productive sector;
4) Improvement of the quality of life; 5) Information society; 6) Development of the Regions.
The main objectives of the Greek government are as follows: to make up the delay with respect to
convergence, to tackle the high level of unemployment and the need to improve education and training
services, to ensure that progress is made in the environmental field, to deal with the weakness in
administration and the problems of management and implementation that stem from it, to address the
deficiency in basic infrastructures in order to strengthen the economic potential, to make up for
backwardness in the field of innovation, in particular insofar as it affects the Information society, and to
cope with the deficiencies in the fields related to the quality of life.
