Dublin Local Authorities’ Draft Climate Change Action Plans 2019-2024

09th January, 2019

Dublin’s four local authorities have joined together to develop Climate Change Action Plans 2019-2024, which outline the actions they will take to prevent and adapt to the effects of climate change.

The Draft Plans set out how the Councils will improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their own buildings and operations, while making Dublin a more climate-adaptive region, with engaged and informed citizens. This will be achieved by a range of ongoing and planned actions in five key action areas, which will be continuously monitored, evaluated and updated to 2030 and beyond.

The public consultation process for the Draft Plans will open on Monday, 11th Februrary 2019 and will run for a six week period until March 25th. During this time, we encourage you to make a submission and have your say on how the Councils are climate-proofing their services across five main action areas. All details on the public consultation process and how to submit to your local authority will be available on www.dublinclimatechange.ie from the 11th February 2019.
