  • Enabling ERW to test ideas and principles in advance of policy formulation and during policy development.
  • Advising ERW of potential strengths and weaknesses of proposed policies and strategies.  
  • Embracing and advocating a regional approach to problem solving.
  • Acting as a general conduit for information, using the aide memoire.
