Climate Action Regional Offices
In addressing the challenges of climate change, it is clear that many local authorities are facing similar challenges to neighbouring local authorities. As a result, four Local Authority Climate Action Regional Offices (CAROs) have been established to drive climate action at regional and local level in Ireland.
The CAROs are operated by a lead Local Authority in four different regions grouped according to shared climate change risks. The establishment of these offices will enable a more coordinated engagement across the whole of government and will help build on the experience and expertise which exists across the sector.
Through these offices the Local Authorities can play a crucial role in driving practical policy and behavioural changes within our communities to encourage both businesses and citizens to embrace the need for climate action.
