Cork City Council has prepared a Draft Climate Change Adaptation Strategy in accordance with the provisions of The Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2015 and the National Adaptation Framework (NAF), 2018.
Purpose of the Strategy:
The Climate Change Adaptation Strategy takes on the role as the primary instrument at local level to:
(i) ensure a proper comprehension of the key risks and vulnerabilities of climate change
(ii) bring forward the implementation of climate resilient actions in a planned and proactive manner and,
(iii) ensure that climate adaptation considerations are mainstreamed into all operations and functions of Cork City Council.
A consultation event will be held by Cork City Council to facilitate members of the general public who wish to discuss the proposed Climate Change Adaptation Strategy. It is open to everyone to walk around the exhibition space and speak with representatives of expert groups from across a wide range of sectors, including environmental / conservation groups, government bodies, business interests.
As it is a public event, there is no need to book a place or confirm attendance, just show up on the day.
