Northern Ireland Co-operation Overseas is a not for profit, public body owned by Invest NI, part of the Department for the Economy NI, dedicated to the pursuit of building efficient, accountable and sustainable public sector institutions capable of managing donor aid effectively and implementing positive change.
Bringing a Unique Approach to Sustainable Development
Direct links with Government departments and public sector institutions across the UK and Ireland allow NI-CO to offer its client base a unique mix of practical training, institutional capacity building and consultancy in a diverse range of areas from Governance and Accessible Justice to Healthcare and Agriculture.
