Climate Adaptation and Mitigation

The effects of climate change pose a serious threat to quality of life, communities, businesses, the environment and biodiversity.  Limerick City and County Council has a Climate Change Adaption Strategy addressing adaption (to minimise the effects of climate change, such as extreme weather events, greenhouse gas emissions) and mitigation (to seek ways to prevent  climate change such as innovative green construction methods and materials).
