Climate Change and Ireland's Agricultural Sector

This research project funded by the European Climate Foundation (ECF) investigates the perspectives of the agricultural sector on climate change and climate policy, comparing it with the general population in Ireland. The aim is to understand how members of the Irish farming community think about climate change; their knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours around climate action and climate policy (especially relating to farming); and how their perspectives compare with those of the rural and urban Irish population.

The project involves a survey of the Irish farming community as well as of the Irish general population (rural and urban). Data collection for this project is currently underway and results are expected by late 2024.
