URBACT in Ireland

URBACT is all about integrated sustainable urban development. URBACT is helping Irish towns and cities to come together to develop solutions, learn, network and build capacity. The programme has four main objectives:

  • Capacity for Policy Delivery
  • Policy Design
  • Policy Implementation
  • Building and Sharing Knowledge

Ultimately it is about providing training and tools to develop better urban policies, making our urban centres better places to live.
