Predicted climate changes for Northern Ireland are characterised by warming, rise in precipitation and potential evapotranspiration, but seasonal and annual effects are inconsistent and year-to-year variation may confound overall trends.
Implications of climate change for Northern Ireland: informing strategy and development. The climate of Northern Ireland is already changing. Air temperature is rising and the number of hot days is increasing; the proportion of rainfall falling in summer is decreasing, while winters are slightly wetter (EHS, ).

In addition, it raises awareness of the potential implications of climate change for biodiversity in Ireland and elsewhere and demonstrates the need for biodiversity conservation plans to factor.
The implications of each climate change impact on public services in Northern Ireland have been assessed and the relevant public bodies that may be responsible for developing and implementing adaptation measures identified.
Predicted adverse impacts include: sea level rise, more intense storms and rainfall events, increased likelihood and magnitude of river and coastal flooding and. water shortages in summer in the east. adverse impacts on water quality.
Climate Change refers to variation in climate over a period of time. Scientists have been recording temperature changes, wind and rainfall patterns for hundreds of years and the predicted trends on a global scale and national scale indicate that we will see increases in temperatures, less defined seasons, more extreme weather events (flooding.
Image caption Government adviser Lord Kreb said flooding was the biggest climate-change related risk to Northern Ireland, with ab homes vulnerable Lord Krebs, who was in. Ireland's position on climate change is one of hypocrisy - lots of hot air but no action continue to rise with no climate action plan in sight.
Ireland's failure to meet its EU emission. More erratic weather conditions could lead to both increased rainfall and storms as well as water shortages in summer. Icreased rainfall could lead to flooding and in turn this would have adverse effects on water quality.
Changing weather could also have devastating effects on.

Northern Ireland Weather, climate and geography Weather and climate Best time to visit. In general, the weather is similar to the rest of the UK, but Northern Ireland tends to have less sunshine and more rain.
The hilly nature of the terrain tends to attract clouds, and westerly winds are common in some areas. This document is a technical supplement to the First comprehensive report – Call for action published in April It describes the impact of climate change on macroeconomics and financial stability, along with its modelling process, knowledge and methodology gaps, and options for central banks and supervisors to respond to this risk.
A study of nine Irish catchments was carried out to quantify the expected impact of climate change on hydrology in Ireland. Boundary data from the European Centre Hamburg Model Version 5 (ECHAM 5.
Entitled "The Implications of Climate Change for Northern Ireland", the study said coasts could change over coming years due to higher sea levels. The risk of. Northern Ireland could face a stark future of floods, water shortages and power cuts as climate change tightens its grip.
T he warning comes in a new blueprint for how the province must adapt to. Changing global temperatures are slowly altering the landscape, flora and fauna, precipitation patterns, flooding patterns, and weather extremes of the island. These effects--coupled with Ireland’s recent economic growth and increasing energy demands--threaten the culture and lifestyle of Ireland’s citizens.
The review aimed to assess the potential effects of climate change on food safety and public health for the populations on the IoI and to highlight those areas of the food chain where impacts are most likely and to recommend steps to ameliorate those impacts.
Climate Northern Ireland. Climate Northern Ireland is an intersectoral network devoted to increasing understanding of climate change impacts and risks within Northern Ireland and promoting the adaptation actions necessary to address these.
