Local Anti- Racism and Diversity Plans / Integration Plans
The importance communities play in promoting integration cannot be overestimated. Integration is most effective at the local level and therefore the Irish Government encourages the Local Strategies and Plans.
Under the National Action Plan Against Racism 2005-2008, funding was provided to a number of Local Authorities towards the development of Anti-Racism and Diversity Plans.
The purpose of the Anti-Racism and Diversity Plans was to foster a coordinated approach at local city/ county level towards the planning, development and implementation of anti-racism and integration strategies. The importance of allowing adequate flexibility to suit local circumstances was stressed. A partnership approach was encouraged in that local authorities, key service providers, local development agencies, and community groups representing and working with minority ethnic groups, social partner bodies should be involved in the steering group and should have a role in developing and implementing such plans.
Over the past number of years, the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration has channelled significant funding to local authorities to encourage them to promote integration at a local level through activities undertaken by the authorities themselves and assistance given by them to local groups. A number of local authorities have also developed integration strategies and action plans, linked in many cases to the funding provided by this Office.

Action Strategies have been developed by the Dublin Inner City Partnership and Fingal County Council.
