Research Report 164 - Local Authority Adaptation Strategy Development Guideline

Author: Stefan Gray, May 2016

Year: 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.

Research 136: Development of Methodologies and Modelling for Accounting Greenhouse Gases and Organic Carbon Stocks in Agricultural Soils

Year: 2015

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.
