THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar examines key issues for implementing ‘Project Ireland 2040’ - looking at the National Planning Framework (NPF), the National Development Plan (NDP) and what is needed to meet the needs of businesses and communities across Ireland.
It is bringing together stakeholders and policymakers at an important time for policy - as national priorities are set out, next steps for regional development are considered, and as strategies begin to be put in place to address the challenges of economic and population changes over the next 20 years.
Delegates will assess latest thinking on shaping and implementing Regional Spatial and Economic Strategies, and how best to tackle the challenges to linking the cities and regions of Ireland - including options for developing the digital connectivity to support economic development.
Further sessions will consider the next steps for planning and delivering long-term infrastructure projects - looking at investment priorities and key issues around energy and climate change - as well as assessing opportunities for developing effective strategies to meet local needs across Ireland, particularly in relation to housing.
