The Regional Association Ruhr (Regionalverband Ruhr, RVR) with offices in Essen is an alliance of 11 autonomous municipalities in the Ruhr metropolitan area with a total of roughly 5.2 million residents. As a regional planning authority, the Association is tasked with regional planning for the Ruhr metropolitan region. It provides support to significant infrastructure projects such as the Industrial Heritage Route and the Emscher Nature Park. The duties assigned to it by statute include promoting the region‘s economy and tourism as well as engaging in public relations activities for the Ruhr metropolitan area. Together with its municipal partners, the Association provides support to the region’s seven parks and recreation areas. The Association also compiles geological and climate data on the region and makes that data available to member municipalities for planning and other purposes. 

The Association is a public entity with authority to exercise self-administration through its own internal structures. It serves the public interest of the Ruhr metropolitan region.
