Protect Communities From Increasingly Frequent High Rainfall Events

THERESA O’DONOHOE, Convenor of the Climate Change working group of the Environmental Pillar, talks to Noel McGuinness on Northside Today. She says that the Environmental Pillar is calling on the Government to bring in substantive land use changes to protect communities from increasingly frequent high rainfall events. The restoration of wetlands, bogs, native woodlands and hedgerows can play a hugely important role in both preventing flooding and dealing with climate change.
