Research report 196 on Climate Technology - Realising the Potential
Author: Stefan Gray, May 2016
The purpose of this guideline is to support local authorities in the development of a local climate change adaptation strategy. In its structure and content, the guideline draws heavily on the 2013 Guidelines on Developing Adaptation Strategies provided to European Union Member States by the European Commission (SWD(2013) 134 final), with the aim of fostering coherence between strategies developed at local and national scale.
This report provides an outline of the regional climate modelling undertaken to determine the potential impacts of climate change in Ireland, based on a number of possible future scenarios, and to highlight the key findings.
This research fellowship progressed in three areas: (i) estimation of SOC stocks within major agricultural land uses; (ii) detailed model simulation of GHGs and SOC stock changes using the ECOSSE model; and (iii) the intercomparison of the ECOSSE, DNDC, and DailyDayCent process-based models calibrated to Irish conditions.
This study describes a two year study of the net ecosystem carbon balance of two such sites and aims to deliver data to allow the Republic of Ireland (ROI) to progress towards a higher tier reporting level for this land use category.
This report sets out the findings of the ADAPT Project. The objectives of the project were to examine the role that economic appraisal methods, including cost–benefit analysis (CBA), can play in the choice of adaptation options, and to make recommendations on possible approaches.
The aim of this document is to give guidance on the compilation of a periodic climate status report, based on the experience of compiling the 2013 edition.
Currently, there is a large body of work on current and anticipated impacts of climate change for Ireland, and it is now considered that there is a robust knowledge base on which to begin the process of adaptation planning (Desmond et al., 2009).

Further research is required to identify critical thresholds or adaptation tipping points. The study recommends a fuller climate change risk assessment to better inform adaptation options.

The work capitalises on the rich history and strengths of hydrometric monitoring and data collection conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency, the Office of Public Works and Local Authorities. The report provides analysis of signals of climate change in these data.
