Programme Objectives

The Ireland Wales Programme aims to further develop the cross border region by:

  • Improving the overall economic, environmental and social well-being of the Ireland Wales co-operation area;
  • Achieving a more cohesive, balanced and sustainable development of the area;
  • Contributing to the greater competitiveness of the region and that of the EU in a globalised world.

The Programme focuses on co-operation to ensure integrated regional development through common strategies. This Programme is seeking projects that aim to jointly address the challenges laid out in EU, Irish and Welsh policies and have a positive impact on local communities in the cross border area.
