In order to plan effectively for climate change, reliable information is required on expected impacts and an understanding of our ability to manage or adapt to their consequences. This will allow us to determine how vulnerable society, the economy and ecosystems are to climate change and to plan accordingly to minimise risks and increase resilience.

This report is an assessment of Ireland’s capacity to adapt to climate change. In the report, a number of important adaptive capacity functions are assessed and presented.
