This is Region Värmland

Region Värmland is an organisation that the county’s 16 municipalities have formed jointly with the county council to take responsibility for regional development, growth issues, culture and adult education in Värmland.

The organisation was set up in  2001 as a municipal association*. Six years later the organisation was changed when the Government decided that every county could set up a cooperative body** to take  over responsibility for a number of Government functions from the county administrative boards. We have therefore been responsible for functions that include the planning of infrastructure in the region, i. e. rail, road, shipping and aviation, since 2007.
