Climate Theme 2: Ireland’s Future Climate,

its Impacts, and Adaptation Options

Vision

Informing transition to a climate resilient Ireland.

Thematic Goal

Provision of research based information in support of risk and vulnerability analysis and adaptation actions in Ireland.

Research objectives include:

  • To provide analyses of on-going and projected changes in Ireland climate system.
  • To provide analyses of responses of managed and natural systems to climate change.
  • To provide information on impacts, risks and vulnerabilities.
  • To identify adaptation options and solutions for Ireland.

Improved information and analysis is needed to manage the transition to a climate resilient Ireland. This will inform decision making on adaptation and planning.

It will include information from climate services and initiatives being developed at EU level e.g. European Environment Agency CLIMATE-ADAPT, and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts - Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate (ECMWF MACC) projects.
