Climate Change, Heritage & Tourism: Implications for Ireland's Coast & Inland Waterways (2009)

The Heritage Council & Fáilte Ireland commissioned this review in order to better inform policy, research and grant support. The main finding of this review is that the heritage of the coast is at particular risk, and that this will impact upon tourism-related activities. Our inland waterways will also be affected by changes in precipitation patterns, flooding, increased water pollution and extreme weather events. The report examines the potential impacts and indirect impacts on heritage from adaptation responses such as flood relief schemes, and renewable energy generation.
