Research 140: ADAPT: Quantifying the Costs and Benefits Associated with Climate Change Risks and Adaptation

Year: 2015

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.

Research Report 135: The Development of an Irish Climate Information Platform (ICIP)

Year: 2015

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).

Current and Future Vulnerabilities to Climate Change in Ireland

Climate Change Research Programme (CCRP) 2007 - 2013 Report Series No. 29, September 2013

Year: 2013

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.

HydroDetect

Climate Change Research Programme (CCRP) 2007 - 2013 Report Series No. 27, September 2013

Year: 2013

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.

Ireland's National Phenology Network (IE-NPN)

Climate Change Research Programme (CCRP) 2007 - 2013 Report Series No. 23, September 2013

Year: 2013

The study links increasing air temperature, particularly in Spring, to the earlier emergence of leaves which contributes to a longer growing season. However, trends in autumn, towards later leaf fall for example, were much less obvious possibly as day-length is a stronger environmental cue than temperature.

The Potential for Grass Biomethane as a Biofuel

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report 11, February 2013

Year: 2013

This report summarises work done by Dr. Jerry Murphy and his team in the Environmental Research Institute at University College Cork. The team has successfully modified standard technologies used to generate methane from waste and used them to generate methane from grass. The team has also undertaken analysis of the barriers to the development of this technology in Ireland.

CCRP16 - Robust Adaptation to Climate Change in the Water Sector in Ireland

Year: 2013

Adaptation is necessary to position Ireland to better cope with the impacts of climate change. This report develops a framework for supporting adaptation to climate change and a tool for assessing adaptation options.

Addressing Climate Change Challenges in Ireland

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report 25, February 2013

Year: 2013

As a Party to the UNFCCC and an EU Member State, Ireland is committed to key climate-protection goals, including ensuring that the average global temperature increase is kept below 2°C. Consideration of 2050 goals is therefore essential for planning and achieving the mitigation targets established under the EU 2020 Climate and Energy Package (CEP).

Irish TIMES Energy Systems Model

Climate Change Research Programme - CCRP Report, February 2013

Year: 2013

This project draws on and contributes to the wealth of international energy-systems modelling research activity. It involved building, developing, calibrating, testing and running a (partial equilibrium) energy-systems optimisation model for Ireland – the Irish TIMES model.
