Final Strategy Towards Climate Change Action Plans published

12th January, 2017

The four Dublin local authorities (DLAs) – Dublin City Council, Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, Fingal County Council and South Dublin County Council – acknowledge that climate change is an immediate challenge and that they have a responsibility in helping to address national climate change targets. The final Strategy Towards Climate Change Action Plans for the Dublin Local Authorities therefore sets out the intentions of the DLAs to work together to develop individual yet collaborative climate change action plans in 2017, one for each local authority area.

Using a structured approach that focuses on seven key areas (Citizen Engagement, Planning, Energy, Transport, Water, Waste, and Ecosystems & Biodiversity), this Strategy sets out how the DLAs will develop the four climate change action plans. The action plans will be unique to each local authority area but synchronised in their methodology. They will contain costed, detailed actions that the DLAs can deliver in order to help to prevent (mitigate) the harmful activities that are contributing to climate change, and limit (adapt to) the impact of the effects of climate change that are inevitable.

This document is a strategy and does not provide specific targets and actions, as these will be developed during the action plan development phase.
