About Ireland’s climate

The climate in Ireland is changing in line with global temperature increases.

Changes in:

  • levels of precipitation;
  • sea level rise, temperature,
  • chemistry and salinity;
  • increased storms, greater frequency of heatwaves;
  • changes in hydrology; and
  • phenology,

are some of the changes either being currently experienced or expected.

The cost of adapting to this changed environment is significant and careful planning is required. This conference will draw from European and National perspectives and will connect this with the experience of those living with and adapting to climate change and the strategic adaptation responses across sectors in Ireland.
