Ireland's Climate Information Platform (ICIP) - Climate Ireland (2017)

Description

The Climate Information Platform for Ireland (ICIP) is scheduled to become fully operational in 2017, after a three-phase development approach. In the first phase (2011-2013) a prototype, 'discovery portal' was developed. In the the second phase (2013-2015) the portal was elaborated to support local-level decision-making for climate adaptation, while in the current, third phase of development (2015-2017) the focus has been on supporting sectoral decision-making for climate adaptation and preparing the platform for operational deployment. The overarching aim of Climate Ireland is to help government, sectors, local authorities, organisations, businesses, as well as the general public at large to adapt to the inevitable consequences of climate change by i) enhancing knowledge and raising awareness; ii) providing information required for climate adaptation; iii) facilitating decision-making for adaptation. For this purpose, the platform provides informational support and advice, including climate data and projections, information on climate adaptation policy, a range of case studies and adaptation tools, a glossary, as well as access to reports, information on upcoming events and other relevant news.
