Climate Change – Home Adaption
Climate change has been recognised internationally as the most important environmental challenge that we currently face.
We know that our local climate is changing, it is becoming less stable and on balance, the evidence suggests that human actions are responsible.
Recognising that we are facing climate breakdown and a biodiversity crisis which are impacting here and now, and will affect all aspects of our lives in coming years, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has resolved to formally declare a Climate Emergency.
The Council has also committed to reaching ‘net zero carbon’, which means that we do not create more carbon emissions than we absorb, by 2042.
Raising awareness of the need to adapt and what can be done is critical and there are many small-scale adaptations and alterations that you can make to your home or property without needing planning or building control approval, to help improve their energy and water efficiency.
These will individually and cumulatively help with the current climate emergency.
Fermanagh and Omagh District Council have developed an information leaflet and toolkit to raise awareness that can be viewed or downloaded below.
