Northern Ireland Environment Forum
The Northern Ireland Environment Forum, organised by agendaNi, is Northern Ireland’s major conference on environmental policy and management.
The conference provides an important opportunity for all the key players in the environment sector to come together for a day of discussion and networking. Alongside visiting experts, the Northern Ireland Environment Forum will be addressed by the key people in Northern Ireland’s environmental policy landscape.
Northern Ireland’s first Climate Action Plan is currently being developed which will cover the period 2023 to 2027. This is part of the draft Green Growth Strategy, which is a long-term vision balancing climate, environment, and the economy. The Climate Action Plan will set out how we intend to achieve the carbon budget for this period and the overall emissions reduction targets as stated in the Climate Change Act (Northern Ireland) 2022.
The biodiversity crisis continues to worsen, an urgent need to protect and restore nature in Northern Ireland and globally. The total number of species on the priority list was 594 at the end of January 2023. Progress is also being made to transition our economy into one that is circular and sustainable.
With challenges facing the environment both locally and globally, the Forum will be of interest to attendees representing all the main sectors with an interest in Northern Ireland’s environment at this pivotal time for the sector.
