The Northern and Western Regional Assembly (NWRA) is one of three Regional Assemblies in the Republic of Ireland. We work with key stakeholders at EU, national, regional and local level to accelerate and optimise effective regional development.

We have three inter-related functional areas, that can develop our region best

  1. BETTER PLACES  – policy making, monitoring / oversight and promoting enhanced co-ordination in our Region through the implementation of our Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy
  2. COMPETITIVENESS – optimise EU policy and funding instruments for regional / local development priorities
  3. COLLABORATION – engage with innovative research partnerships and regional based networks to accelerate priorities identified in the Regional Spatial and Economic Strategies
