Urban Development Land, Housing and Infrastructure: Fixing Ireland's Broken System (145)
The State must drive the provision of housing and urban development. The Irish housing system is speculative, volatile and expensive. The urban land system is dysfunctional: land is not available in appropriate locations at a cost that will allow affordable housing to be provided. This is the message from the National Economic and Social Council (NESC) in this report.

Moving Towards the Circular Economy in Ireland (144)
This report finds that there is momentum in circular economy practices in Ireland, but action is needed to build on the early advantage. This report highlights some of the leaders in the Irish circular economy, whose products and services keep resources in use for longer, extract the maximum value from them and recover products and materials. The report includes ten case studies of businesses and social enterprises. The research, by Dr Simon O’Rafferty, highlights the opportunities available for businesses and social enterprises, while drawing attention to the regulatory and social challenges in facilitating the transition to a circular economy.
