Posted on December 04, 2015 by Daragh McCarthy
The latest NERI seminar, 'Ireland’s daunting climate change challenge in the period to 2030: how to respond?', was held on 2 December. Joseph Curtin, Research Fellow at the Institute of International and European Affairs on climate policy, provided an overview of Ireland’s climate change challenge within the context of the upcoming Paris COP 21 and EU climate 2030 negotiations. He reviewed Ireland’s progress to date, and presented options for meeting future international commitments. The seminar drew upon research papers on community energy schemes (co-authored with Dr. Celine McInerney, UCC) and on divestment for fossil fuels (co-authored with Dr. Paul Dean, UCC) along with IIEA research into the implications of climate change for the agriculture sector.
