Climate Change

The Department will lead the sector in confronting the climate change challenge and in doing so; will continue to develop a vibrant, sustainable, agri-food sector, while continuing to play its part in reducing Ireland's greenhouse gas emissions. It will also play a part in seeking a global solution that ensures world production of sufficient food to meet the needs of a growing population and that agriculture plays its part mitigating climate change.

In this regard the Department sees Ireland's participation in international research initiatives such as the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions and the EU wide Joint Programming Initiative on Food Security, Agriculture and Climate Change and the Global Alliance on Climate Smart Agriculture along with continued funding of agricultural research in Ireland as very important in ensuring the sector contributes to climate change ambitions and ensuring that food production is not threatened.
