Climate Northern Ireland is an intersectoral network devoted to increasing understanding of climate change impacts and risks within Northern Ireland and promoting the adaptation actions necessary to address these.
Climate Northern Ireland was launched as the Northern Ireland Climate Change Impacts Partnership (NICCIP) in 2008, following a recommendation from the 2007 DOE/SNIFFER report, Preparing for a Changing Climate in Northern Ireland. The partnership formally changed its name to Climate Northern Ireland in December 2011.
Climate Northern Ireland is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) to help fulfil its obligations to address climate change.
Climate Northern Ireland is part of the Climate UK network, which consists of 12 climate change partnerships in Scotland, Wales and the English regions who work together to deliver coordinated action on climate change at the local and national level.
