The EPA Climate Change in the Irish Mind Climate Opinion Maps, produced in partnership with the Yale Programme on Climate Communication show how climate change beliefs, risk perceptions, and policy support vary at the county and regional levels.
The EPA’s role in addressing climate change challenges includes collating national greenhouse gas emissions and projections; regulating emissions from industrial sectors; supporting climate science research; supporting behavioural change and facilitating the National Dialogue on Climate Action.
Climate Risk Perceptions & Support for Climate Policies
Insight Reports from the EPA's Climate Change in the Irish Mind Study brings a fresh analysis of selected results from the Climate Change in the Irish Mind 2021 main report. The Insight Reports focus on the topics of national levels of support for climate policies and demographic trends in climate change risk perceptions.

The report shows that the Irish population can be categorised into four distinct audiences based on attitudes about climate change identified as the Alarmed, Concerned, Cautious and Doubtful.
This report, carried out in partnership with Yale University, is a baseline study of the Irish population's beliefs, attitudes, policy preferences and behaviours regarding climate change.
