Climate Conversations 2024 launched

A new forum has been launched on climate action and farmers are encouraged to participate.

The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications has launched Climate Conversations 2024 which invites people and communities from across the country to have their say.

The Cavan IFA Environment Chairman Seamus Dolan is encouraging farmers to have their say.

“It is very important that farmers and rural communities take the time to complete the online questionnaire and provide feedback to the Climate Conversation which will feed into, and shape, the next Climate Action Plan,” Seamus Dolan said.

The online questionnaire is open until the September 22, 2024 and can be accessed here.

The IFA County Environment Chairman stressed that as key stakeholders, it is very important that farmers views on climate action are captured, and that they actively participate in the conversation.

“It is only right that farmers voices are heard as part of the national climate conversation.

"The next Climate Action Plan will mark a crucial mid-way point in Ireland’s plan to halve our emissions by 2030,” he added.
