Department for Communities Publishes Report on the Impacts of Climate Change on the Historic Built Environment

This report and guide outlines the climate change and associated risks which may threaten the survival and long term sustainability of Northern Ireland’s historic built environment. Strategies are proposed to assess, monitor, adapt and mitigate against current and developing impacts. The report highlights the need for building owners and custodians to understand the areas of vulnerability of their assets and then to focus attention on what additional adverse impacts might come into play as a consequence of radically changing meteorological patterns and events – a changing climate.

This report is by Ulster Architectural Heritage, funded by the Department for Communities Historic Environment Division.
