Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The aim of the ‘Linking the Irish Environment’ project is to examine how to enhance the ability of the environment sector across the island of Ireland to cooperate and engage on an all-island and cross-border basis to deal with shared environmental challenges, risks, and opportunities. This report has been commissioned by the Northern Ireland Environment Link (NIEL) and the Irish Environment Network (IEN) – the two membership organisations for the environmental non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Northern Ireland (NI) and the Republic of Ireland (ROI). NIEL has more than 65 organisational members and IEN has 34. The report has been funded through Community Foundation Ireland (CFI) and Community Foundation Northern Ireland’s (CFNI) joint ‘All-island fund’ and has been commissioned as part of the first stage in the development of a long-term programme for the delivery of greater north/south environmental NGO cooperation and includes recommendations to help shape the way forward.
This is an independent report setting out the views of the authors. The report should be read in light of the fluid and ongoing political context surrounding the NI Protocol and other post-Brexit arrangements.
