Transport-Orientated Development: Assessing the Opportunity for Ireland (148)
What if urban development made it easier to use public transport, and cycle or walk to work and school? The State must build on the vision set out in Project Ireland 2040 to maximise the number of homes, jobs, public services and amenities which are close to frequent, high-quality transport services. This is the message from the National Economic and Social Council (NESC) who today publish a new report No.148, Transport-Orientated Development: Assessing Opportunity for Ireland. Reaching the strategic objectives of compact growth and sustainable mobility will require further specific decisions to create such development at key locations, new institutional arrangements and tailored funding mechanisms.

Research Paper 13_Advancing the Low-Carbon Transition in Irish Transport
This research from DCU identifies three main themes: complexities inherent in transport; competing priorities and contestation between institutional drivers; and the fragmented governance landscape and institutional opportunities for enhanced co-ordination. Building on research findings, the report identifies a set of recommendations and poses a number of questions for stakeholders who wish to strengthen low-carbon transition in Irish transport.

Climate-Change Policy: Getting the Process Right (147)
There is a growing consensus that ambitious action is needed if we are to stop climate change. Ireland is ready to do more as evident from the efforts of our children and young people, as well as the Oireachtas Joint Committee’s report and ongoing work to produce an all-of-Government plan. To safeguard our future, protect coming generations, achieve a just transition and meet international obligations, actions have to urgently and continuously deliver results. This report focuses on how to combine an ambitious long-term climate change mission with an urgent and active policy process that can discover, try out and support practical actions that reduce carbon emissions.

Secretariat Paper 17_The Framing of Climate Action in Ireland: Strategic Considerations
Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing policy-makers today, and Ireland’s record on climate action is widely accepted as being disappointing. Part of the explanation for this lies in the uncertainty about what action Ireland can and should take, and uncertainty about how acceptable any climate action will be to various groups in society. In this context of uncertainty, how a problem is framed can have a significant impact on subsequent decisions taken to address that problem. This Secretariat paper examines if and how the framing (or reframing) of climate action can lead to more progress in this challenging area.
