Mr. Michael Creed T.D., Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine invites submissions, observations and comments on the Draft Agriculture, Forest and Seafood Climate Change Sectoral Adaptation Plan. This Plan is mandated by the Government’s National Adaptation Framework.

Adaptation is about managing the unavoidable impacts of climate change. This Draft Sectoral Adaptation Plan for the agriculture, forest and seafood sectors presents an assessment of climate risks to these sectors and describes key adaptive measures.

Why we are launching this consultation?

The objective of this public consultation is to invite all interested parties to contribute their views on the Draft Plan during a seven-week consultation process.  The views of the public are essential to delivering a comprehensive Plan that thoroughly assesses the key risks and vulnerabilities of our agriculture, forest and seafood sectors to climate change. A comprehensive Plan, incorporating the public’s views is also essential for ensuring that climate adaptation measures are mainstreamed into all national, regional and local policy making.

Therefore, the objective of this public consultation is to invite all interested parties to contribute their views in relation to the Draft Plan during this seven-week consultation process.

The consultation will end at close of business on Friday 16 August 2019.
