Mitigation

A National Mitigation Plan (NMP) is a requirement of the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2015. The agriculture and forest sector measures have been submitted for inclusion in the NMP.

The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment published a draft plan in March 2017 – see link below:

There has been a high level of cooperation between this Department and the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment in relation to the development of the NMP.  Department officials have actively participated on a range of inter-departmental groups.

In relation to the development of our sectoral measures we have consulted widely including through public consultation and open policy debate on the potential for greenhouse gas mitigation within the sector. We have also consulted with the relevant bodies under the aegis of the Department.

See below a link to the - Public Consultation on a discussion document on the potential for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) mitigation within the Agriculture and Forestry Sector:
