Exploring Community Work and Human Rights Approaches to Climate Action

Ireland has declared a climate and biodiversity emergency.

Sustainable, Inclusive and Empowered Communities, the new strategy to support the community and voluntary sectors in Ireland, includes an objective to support community development and local development to engage with Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Strategies. There is an increasing awareness of the importance of awareness and action at community level.
