The Climate Policy For Ruminant Agriculture In Ireland Blog Series by UCD Adjunct Professor Frank Convery, a twelve-part weekly blog series exploring the contentious, complex and important relationship between climate change and agriculture. In this blog series, Professor Convery explores the context, challenges and potential solutions for dairy, beef and sheep farming in Ireland. Each blog presents key evidence to underpin informed debate and the series seeks to help plot a sustainable future for the sector.

Responses are invited via and the UCD Earth Institute will host a workshop in association with the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science and the National Economic and Social Council at the end of the series in December 2022 to discuss the evidence and its implications.
