In its submission to the consultation, Sustrans said:

“It is unacceptable there is no specific climate change legislation in Northern Ireland” which

“would allow specific policies to be developed to meet emissions targets and adapt…to… risks.”

Given the close connection between the climate emergency and the natural environment emergency, is it not time that Northern Ireland was able to legislate so that it could develop its own climate strategy?
