Call for Evidence and Views on Climate Change Bill NI

Organisation Northern Ireland Assembly - Committee for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs
Date 15th July 2021 12:00 AM (GMT)

The Climate Change Bill that has recently come before the Northern Ireland (NI) Assembly sets out a framework to mitigate the effects of Climate Change in the coming years.

The Bill proposes several mechanisms to help achieve its aims including establishment of Climate Action Plans across various sectors and regular reporting to monitor progress in terms of delivering the net-zero target.

As part of the NI Assembly’s normal legislative processes, the Climate Change Bill has been referred to the Assembly’s Committee for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (AERA) for scrutiny and evaluation.

The Committee is seeking views from stakeholders on the objectives, proposals and potential consequences of the Bill so it can understand how the legislation could affect different parts of society and how effective it may be in achieving its aims.

Your views will help to inform the AERA Committee’s consideration of the Climate Change Bill and any recommendations it may suggest as the Bill moves to the next stage of the legislative process.
