Our Project Ireland Event

​As part of Project Ireland 2040, the Department held the 'Empowering Communities for Climate Action' event in Smock Alley Theatre on Wednesday 20 June 2018.

The event launched 'Investing in the Transition to a Low-Carbon and Climate-Resilient Society 2018 - 2027' and aimed to promote how the Government is committed to charting a course towards achieving a low carbon and climate resilient future by 2050. To become low carbon we have to limit the magnitude of long-term climate change, and this requires actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve climate resilience, we have to reduce our vulnerability to climate change impacts for those impacts that are already being locked in while also taking a longer term view for where we might be well into the future.
