Public communication and outreach are essential to inform and educate residents of Cork to climate mitigation and adaptation measures. Cork City Council will build awareness on the challenges of climate change, keep the public informed on the implementation of this strategy and improve information flows during extreme weather events. A specific Communications Plan to support the implementation of the climate adaptation strategy will be developed to disseminate outcomes and updates to the various stakeholders. This will assist in the development of community forums to engage with the public so as to encourage greater participation and behavioural change in all aspects of climate adaptation and mitigation.
