In 2018 the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht invited tenders for the preparation of a Climate Change Adaptation Sectoral Plan for the Built and Archaeological Heritage, as part of the National Adaptation Plan. The University of Lincoln (as lead research partner) together with lead partner Carrig Conservation Ltd., and the Irish Green Building Council, were successful in winning this tender.
In 2016 Cathy Daly (University of Lincoln) was commissioned to undertake desktop-research and write a report for the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs of Ireland with the aim of informing future policy development. Cathy’s research consultancy focuses on the intersection of climate change and cultural heritage
The delivery of the adaptation plan required desk top research, consultation with experts and implementers, and two stakeholder workshops.
