Building on the National Climate Change Policy 2000, the National Climate Change Strategy 2007-2012 seeks to set out how Ireland will meet its Kyoto Protocol commitment, how the relevant policy measures will position Ireland for the post-2012 period, and areas in which further measures are being explored to enable the country to meet its eventual commitment. The strategy described activities in the energy sector, in homes and businesses, in the agriculture and forestry sector, in waste management and in the public sector. It also addressed adaptation and provided for the establishment of a Climate Change Commission to advise the government on means to transition to a low-carbon economy. Annual progress reports on implementation of the Strategy will be made to parliament.
