Irish Farmers Journal – Financial incentives required for climate mitigation measures – report

A new report from NUI Galway examines farmers’ attitudes and preferences for climate change adaptation. The report by Whitaker Institute member Edel Doherty is part of the RiskAquaSoil project, and aims to present findings on farmers’ beliefs regarding climate change, the drivers and barriers of climate change adaptation and the willingness of Irish farmers to engage in specific adaptation measures related to insurance protection for their own farm and improved flood protection for downstream communities.
