2009-07-11: Why are people surprised at the damaging impacts of recent heavy rainfalls in Ireland ?
Hardly a building or a road has been designed in this country for deluge rainfalls.
Existing building and road design practices are no longer adequate.
When, therefore, will any urgency be given to ADAPTATION ???
Built Environment Adaptation to Climate Change
Reliably implementing policies, practices, projects and institutional reforms with the aim of reducing the adverse impacts and/or realizing the benefits directly/indirectly associated with climate change, including variability and extremes – in a manner which is compatible with sustainable human and social development.
