Adaptation involves taking action to reduce the adverse impacts of climate change and is now necessary due to current and future climate change.
Historical emissions of greenhouse gases mean that climate change is now unavoidable regardless of future emission reductions. The situation is now urgent and we must now plan for climate change adaptation. Planned adaptation actions in conjunction with on-going mitigation efforts are now essential. Climate Ireland provides information to help you understand and plan for climate change adaptation.
Adaptation involves taking action to reduce the adverse impacts of climate change while taking advantage of any opportunities that these changes might bring. Adapting to climate change will be a significant challenge for organisations but it is essential that this adaptation moves beyond short term emergency and continuity planning.
