Climate Call 2018

A sustained Climate Research Programme is an essential component of Ireland’s role in meeting its requirements under The Paris Agreement 2015, the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act (2015), the UNECE Air Convention, the EU Clean Air Package and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and is committed to aligning our research to assist in the delivery of these goals.
The EPA Climate Research priorities include:

  • Supporting the transition to a low carbon, climate resilient and environmentally sustainable economy by the end of the year 2050. This is will be done through developing the public, policy makers and the research community understanding of what this objective means in an Irish context and how it might be achieved. 
  • Developing integrated approaches and growth opportunities through management of the challenges that arise from climate change, air quality and other environmental issues.

The EPA Research Programme has been allocated funding of approximately €2.8m for new commitments in Climate research in 2018.
