Water Forum Panel Discussion on the Potential Impacts of Climate change on water quantity and water quality.

The researchers highlight  that Ireland needs much more strategic planning  and responses to drought that will be particularly impactful in the east and south in the coming years. Climate change will bring more extreme rainfall events so more urgent action is needed to reduce pollutants on land as these are highly susceptible to mobilisation during such events causing pollution in our waterways.
