Ireland: National climate change adaptation framework - Building resilience to climate change

A framework that provides the policy context for a strategic national adaptation response to climate change in Ireland and is designed to evolve over time as planning and implementation progresses, as further evidence becomes available. It provides a clear mandate for the relevant Government Departments, Agencies and local authorities to commence the preparation of sectoral and local plans, and to publish drafts of these plans by mid-2014.

The framework plan is about helping people to cope and reduce the disruption to their lives from the impacts of climate change; to understand the changes required to enhance their quality of life; and to help our economic recovery take account of these changes to climate patterns and extreme events so that jobs are protected.
