Advocacy and Demonstration — Evidenced-based Planning

In its research on inter-jurisdictional and cross-border planning ICLRD has shown that one of the first entry points to developing cooperation among central and local governments is providing information and shared evidence on common issues such as housing, trade, environment, transport and services. The process of collection, joint analysis, reports and forums can help to build an agenda for action around common interests and challenges. In collaboration with the National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis at NUI Maynooth, and its All-Island Research Observatory (AIRO) initiative, the ICLRD is supporting evidence-informed decision-making.
