“Climate Action Plan for Belfast” - Republican Journal Community News

Description

On August 14, the Republican Journal reported on the “standing room only” presentation of the City Of Belfast Climate Action Plan by the Belfast Climate Crisis Committee (now the Climate, Energy and Utilities Committee / CEUC).

“The presenters, past members of the CCC (Fred Bowers and Barbara Bell), and present members of the CEUC (Jerry Brand, Jon Beal and Bernie Baker), focused on the challenges to the city of Belfast posed by climate change, and initiatives for adaptation of our critical infrastructure to enable Belfast to be resilient with equity for all residents. [...]  In addition to critical infrastructure, the [Climate Action Plan] includes initiatives that can be taken by property owners, such as rain gardens to reduce flooding and installation of heat pumps in homes to reduce energy costs.”

The Climate Action Plan was presented to Belfast City Council on June 4 and is awaiting adoption. Some of the recommended actions are already underway, and a search for funding for others is occurring.

Attendees expressed an interest in participating in some form of a climate action advocacy organization to become further involved.
