3.5.4 Integrating Climate Change Policies into the Development Plan

Policies and objectives within this chapter are complemented by, and related to, aims contained in other chapters. It is through the implementation of these policies and objectives in their entirety that the overall approach of Dublin City Council to climate change can be considered.

The table below provides useful cross-references to each of these chapters, outlining how their content can effectively contribute towards climate change adaptation/mitigation. (Note that this is not exhaustive).

In addition to, and related to, the above, are the strategic environmental assessment and appropriate assessment processes through which all policies and objectives are assessed. Strategic flood risk assessment influences the pattern of appropriate landuses.

The following appendices supplement policies and objectives. Appendix 4 helps with climate change mitigation, Appendix 11 contains important adaptation works, whilst Appendix 20 establishes useful indicators.
