Limerick to host major Biodiversity Conference

“How Local Authorities can address the Biodiversity Emergency” aims to identify some of the challenges & opportunities to help address the biodiversity emergency. 

The guest speakers from Ireland, England, The Netherlands and Northern Ireland at this timely conference will highlight best national and international practice examples and provide an opportunity for the audience to identify and prioritise key actions to help biodiversity conservation. 

The conference will also provide a series of key recommendations for the future priorities for local authority actions on biodiversity as it is essential that we maintain and enhance our national, regional and local biodiversity as we move toward a decarbonised society.
