InBrief: The heat is on for Northern Ireland to tackle climate change
Globe in hand

This InBrief summarises the main recommendations made by the Institute of Public Health in a recent submission on the Northern Ireland Climate Change (No.2) Bill. Proposed by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, the ‘No.2’ Bill proposes that the target to reduce carbon emissions by 2050 is reduced to 82%, instead of the 100% target recommended on foot of high-quality scientific evidence. 

In its submission, the Institute made a series of recommendations and highlighted the need to address the climate crisis as a health emergency and to act faster on meeting current climate change targets.
