Climate change is impacting on Cork.

Cork City Council is taking a leading role in ensuring our city is ready for this challenge and has developed a climate change adaptation strategy to help us increase our resilience in accordance with the provisions of The Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2015 and the National Adaptation Framework (NAF), 2018.
