Climate NI conference 6 March 2012

Climate Northern Ireland hosted an event on 16 February at Greenmount Agricultural College to discuss the impacts of climate change in Northern Ireland.   The Environment Minister used the event to claim that the challenge for NI was to be a world leader in carbon reduction.

He said that the ‘green and clean’ brand of Ireland could be grown if NI was seen as a carbon leader. Leading on Climate Change is a central element in all of this.  The Department of Environment are working on a Climate Change Adaptation Programme to meet the challenges posed by changes in climate.

The conference also discussed the findings of the first Northern Ireland Climate Change Risk Assessment report (CCRA) which highlights over 100 climate change risks and opportunities facing Northern Ireland between now and the end of the century.  The report is one of a number of such reports produced by an independent consortium funded by Defra and the Devolved Administrations. They provide an assessment of the risks to the UK of the current and predicted impacts of climate change. The CCRA reports are the first of its kind and will be prepared on a five year cycle.
