Climate Change and its potential impacts on our waterways is a key issue for Waterways Ireland.  In line with the National Adaptation Framework we are commencing the development of our Climate Action Plan & Adaptation Strategy.  This questionnaire is the first step that Waterways Ireland are undertaking in preparation of our plan and aims to meaningfully engage and consult with all our stakeholders - community, NGO and statutory agencies.  Your early participation in this process is invaluable.  It will help ensure we understand key risks and vulnerabilities that will inform the development of climate resilient actions. Further information on Climate Change from the Dept. Communications Climate Action & Environment (RoI) can be found here, Climate Change Unit in the Dept. of Agriculture, Environment & Rural Affairs (NI) here, the EPAs FAQ section on Climate Change in Ireland, or at Climate Communication which is dedicated to improving public understanding of climate change.
