Climate Change Advisory Council

I was recently appointed to the Climate Change Advisory Council in Ireland. The Council is an independent advisory body providing evidence-based advice and recommendations on policy to support Ireland's just transition to a biodiversity rich, environmentally sustainable, climate neutral and resilient society. I hope to contribute to the work of the council in particular through connecting with social and behavioural science evidence relevant to the mandate. The last annual report published by the council is available here.

See link here for an Irish Behavioural Science and Policy Network event on reducing reducing sludge in environmental policy applications with Lucia Reisch (University of Cambridge), Shane Timmons (ESRI) , Emma Howard (TU Dublin) and Des O’Mahony (Environmental Protection Agency), and the discussion was moderated by Deidre Robertson (ESRI).

Some interesting readings below relevant to climate behaviour in Irish context:
