County Cork in Ireland (NUT2 South-West, code IE05) Demonstrations in Cork
Why this Demo?
The southwest of Ireland, specifically the coastline of County Cork, is home to several internationally and European protected sites due to their ecological significance in terms of species and habitats such as seabirds and cetaceans. However, the coast is facing multiple challenges such as coastal erosion exacerbated by climate change impacts, including seasonal variations in visitor numbers and land-use.
To address these challenges, Demo IE aims to explore the interplay between coastal protection, climate adaptation, and nature-based restoration, taking advantage of an engaged citizenry to promote an integrated and participatory approach to coastal management and planning. The initiative seeks to improve the knowledge base to support informed decision-making and facilitate partnerships at the local and regional levels.
