All 4 Draft Climate Change Action Plans Approved by Councils
We are delighted to announce that the elected members of Dublin City, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal and South Dublin County Councils have approved the Climate Change Action Plans 2019-2024.
Climate change poses significant risks and challenges to the Dublin Region. In response to this, each of the four Dublin Local Authorities have worked with Codema - Dublin's Energy Agency and the Dublin Metropolitan Climate Action Regional Office (CARO) in developing individual Draft Climate Change Action Plans, showing how each local authority will act to prevent and adapt to the effects of climate change.
The Plans identify the main climate risks facing Dublin and outline both the Councils’ and the region’s current levels of greenhouse gas emissions.
They also outline all the actions that are ongoing or planned within the Councils and these are grouped under five key areas - Energy and Buildings, Transport, Flood Resilience, Nature-Based Solutions and Resource Management.
The public consultation for each of the four Draft Climate Change Action Plans was held through a series of events and workshops this year between 11th February and 25th March.
The Dublin Local Authorities received a total of 563 valid submissions from stakeholders or members of the public.
Following the public consultation process, each Council prepared a Chief Executive’s Report on the submissions received.
