Podcast: Lessons for Irish Reunification from Germany
Podcast: Lessons for Irish Reunification from Germany
5 Jul 2024
IIEA
Prof. Tobias Lock gives a detailed examination of the constitutional and legal processes behind German reunification to highlight the substantial legal challenges that Irish unification would entail. Similar to German reunification, achieving Irish unity would necessitate negotiations at multiple levels: domestic, bilateral, and international, including with the EU. This process would involve integrating two distinct legal systems, addressing issues ranging from the routine to the contentious. Although the specific issues will differ between Germany and Ireland, Prof. Tobias Lock argues that the legal techniques used in Germany, such as frontloading, transition periods, and conflict rules could also be effectively applied to Irish unification. About the Speaker: Tobias Lock is a Professor of Law at Maynooth University and the founding director of the Maynooth Centre for European Law. From 2020-2023, he held the Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law and Fundamental Rights. Originally from Germany, Prof. Lock previously taught at the University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on EU constitutional and fundamental rights law, comparative constitutional law, and the relationship between EU law, domestic law, and international law. He is an EU law adviser to the Scottish Parliament and a member of the Royal Irish Academy’s ARINS project.

Large carnivore reintroductions to Britain and Ireland: farmers' perspectives and management options
18 Jun 2024
Nuffield Farming
Dr Jonny Hanson's report video Large carnivore reintroductions to Britain and Ireland: farmers' perspectives and management options, sponsored by The Thomas Henry Foundation. Jonny's full report can be downloaded from: https://www.nuffieldscholar.org/sites/default/files/2024-06/Jonny%20Hanson%20final%20report_0.pdf ***** Executive Summary The potential reintroductions of wolves, lynx and bears to Britain and Ireland after absences of centuries, or even millennia, is one of the most controversial agri-environmental topics of the century. An application for a trial reintroduction of lynx in England was declined in 2018, with an unrelated project under discussion in Scotland. Yet with successful reintroductions of some non-carnivore species across these islands, from beavers to eagles, the idea is likely to grow in popularity and ambition. But despite the many social, economic and environmental benefits extolled by supporters of reintroductions, the costs and challenges are also significant, with many likely to be borne by livestock farmers. Few studies have considered their perspectives to date. On the other hand, there are numerous examples from around the world of large carnivore conservation successfully coexisting with a range of rural activities and stakeholders, including livestock farming. In multiple contexts, a wide variety of tools and methods are utilised to manage this coexistence with large carnivores, grouped into five main themes: deterrence, finance, force, enterprise and governance. In turn, these approaches, of which governance stands out as the most significant and important, influence and are influenced by various strategic factors. These include political, economic, social, technological, legal and environmental issues. This study explored farmers’ perspectives on the context, management and governance of coexistence between potential large carnivore reintroductions and livestock farming in Britain and Ireland through 10 interviews with agricultural and rewilding representatives. It also explored examples of coexistence from over 40 interviews in and/or visits to Switzerland, France, Belgium the Netherlands and the USA, which are presented as case studies. Finally, it developed a Reintroduction Coexistence Framework to encapsulate and visualise the varied dimensions of this topic. In summary, large carnivore reintroductions are likely to be complex, contested and costly endeavours, whether with lynx, or, to an even greater extent, with wolves and bears. The primary challenge with all three species is likely to be the management and governance of coexistence with livestock farming, particularly of sheep. The qualitative findings from this report suggest that there is a degree of consensus, among both farming and rewilding representatives alike, about the scope and scale of these challenges, with both groups citing the varied political, economic, social, legal and environmental dimensions. However, agricultural interviewees were more likely to stress the potential negative consequences of reintroductions. Case studies from Switzerland, the Netherlands, Wyoming, Montana and Colorado illustrate the complexities in relation to deterrence, finance, force, enterprise and governance options respectively. Overall, the strategic context for potential large carnivore reintroductions to Britain and Ireland is currently extremely challenging. ***** Nuffield Farming Scholarships are awarded to approximately 20 members of the UK food, farming, horticulture and rural industries each year.

Podcast: Northern Ireland Subvention: Possible Unification Effects
28 May 2024
IIEA
In their address to the IIEA, John FitzGerald and Edgar Morgenroth present their recent IIEA publication on the Northern Ireland subvention, which considers what the financial costs for the government in Ireland would be of Irish unification, using data from 2019. They discuss the findings from their paper, including that covering the Northern Ireland deficit would cost around 5% of Irish national income, and raising Northern Ireland’s public service pay rate and welfare rates to levels south of the border would cost another 5% of national income. According to FitzGerald and Morgenroth, if Northern Ireland were to immediately address the cause of its very low productivity, especially the inadequacies of its educational system, when such action matured in 25 or 30 years, this could substantially reduce the cost of unification. A quicker productivity win would also be available if Northern Ireland could persuade the large number of emigrants who are university graduates living in England to return. About the Speakers: John FitzGerald is Co-Chair of the Institute of International and European Affairs Economists Group, a member of the UK Group, and an Honorary Fellow, and Adjunct Professor of Economics at Trinity College Dublin. He is also a Research Affiliate at the Economic and Social Research Institute, and a Member of the Royal Irish Academy.  He was a member of the Central Bank of Ireland Commission from 2010 to 2020 and he was Chairman of the Irish government’s Climate Change Advisory Council until January 2021.

EPA Climate Lecture 2024 - Professor Lea Berrang Ford
9 May 2024
EPA Ireland
The first EPA climate change lecture of 2024 took place on the 23 of April in the Banking Hall at the College Green Hotel with guest speaker Professor Lea Berrang Ford, head of the UKHSA Centre for Climate and Health Security. Climate change will have substantial and widespread consequences for human health, ranging from increased hospitalisation and deaths during more frequent and intense heatwaves, increasing suitability of regions for invasive mosquito species capable of transmitting infectious pathogens, implications for mental health, and impacts on antimicrobial resistance. Many nations are grappling with the challenge of coordinating research and governance to prepare for and respond to these risks. The lecture provided an overview of the landscape of climate change and health, including risks, intervention opportunities, and state of the evidence. Drawing on the experience of the new Centre for Climate and Health Security within the UK Health Security Agency, this lecture provided an optimistic vision for how public health and environmental agencies are grappling with and preparing for the grand challenge of climate change threats to health.

Research 456: Roadway Run-off and Nutrient-loss Reduction
1 May 2024
EPA Ireland
All EU Member States are required to prepare National Nitrates Action Programmes that outline rules for the management and application of livestock manures and other fertilisers. Ireland’s Nitrates Action Programme (Article 17.20) states “There shall be no direct runoff of soiled water from farm roadways to waters”. Despite existing regulation, there has been minimal research in Ireland pertaining to the source, content, pathway, mobilisation and impact of roadway runoff. The Roadrunner project reviewed mitigation measures to treat roadway runoff, developed an on-farm visual tool to find and document connectivity between roadway runoff and waters, and provided the evidence base to define roadway runoff as a unique sub-component of the nutrient transfer continuum.

Research 450: Infrastructure Climate Change Risk Considering Interdependencies and Cascading Hazards
29 Feb 2024
EPA Ireland
Extreme weather events such as storms, landslides, river floods and coastal phenomena have threatened and damaged many different regions across Ireland. These events, while rare and often short-lived, can have a devastating impact on critical infrastructure systems. As a result of climate change, these events are becoming more frequent and more intense, affecting not only physical infrastructure but also the environment and society as a whole. Using risk-based approaches in assessing the impacts of extreme weather events and climate change is a well-established method of identifying the most vulnerable infrastructure, assessing the risks posed to that infrastructure and developing strategies to minimise those risks.

Decarbonising Ireland's Gas Network
Decarbonising Ireland's Gas Network
16 Feb 2024
IIEA
This event was organised in conjunction with Gas Networks Ireland Expert speakers discuss how Ireland can harness the potential of renewable gas production and anaerobic digestion to decarbonise the national gas network. As Ireland seeks to meet its green transition obligations, biomethane and other renewable gases could not only enable Ireland's decarbonisation, but also provide opportunities for exporting energy. At present, Ireland's national modern network can already transport biomethane and hydrogen and could be adapted to transport 100 percent green hydrogen in the future. This panel discusses the opportunities that renewable gas production and anaerobic digestion could provide for Ireland and how to remove obstacles to their use. About the Speakers: David Kelly is the Director of Customer and Business Development at Gas Networks Ireland. David has over twenty years of executive-level experience having worked extensively in both the private and public sectors throughout his career. Prior to being appointed to his current role, David was the Group Head of Customer Operations and Public Affairs for Ervia. JJ Lenehan is a Building Officer with Teagasc, the national body providing integrated research, advisory and training services to the agriculture and food industry and rural communities. Together with two colleagues he looks after technical property related issues at the 55 locations the organisation operates from across the country. He is an engineer by profession and has a special interest in energy use in Teagasc where the Built Environment accounts for the largest proportion of energy consumed at over 80% of the total. Teresa O’Flynn is a partner at Ara Partners and co-leads their infrastructure strategy. She has more than twenty years of sustainable investing expertise with extensive renewable power energy infrastructure experience, both in the fund management sector and at the operating company level. Teresa joined BlackRock in 2011 as a founding member of its Global Renewable Power Infrastructure business. In 2019, she became Global Head of Sustainable Investing for BlackRock’s Alternatives investment platform. Prior to joining BlackRock, Teresa worked for NTR plc, a private infrastructure developer, across several of the group’s European and US wind development subsidiaries.

Two Nations, One Mission: Irish and Canadian Reflections on COP28
13 Feb 2024
IIEA
A month on from COP28, the question remains: did the COP signal a sufficient commitment by countries and stakeholders to adequately address the issue of our age?  Catherine Stewart, Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change, and Sinéad Walsh, Climate Director at Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs, have been at the forefront of their respective governments’ approaches to addressing climate change globally and have been in the ‘room where it happens’ at various UNFCCC COPs. Though traditionally like-minded on most international issues, Ireland and Canada come to the issue of climate change facing very different challenges and opportunities. Ambassador Stewart and Director Walsh offer their views on what came out of COP28 and how Canada, Ireland, and others might pursue their efforts to address global climate challenges, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and accelerate the green transition. About the speakers: Catherine Stewart was appointed as Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change in August 2022. With over 25 years in the federal government, Ambassador Stewart’s most recent role was Assistant Deputy Minister of International Affairs at Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). Since 2014, she has served in senior executive roles at ECCC including as Canada’s Chief Negotiator for Climate Change, Director General Multilateral Affairs and Climate Change, and Director General for the Americas.  Dr Sinead Walsh is Climate Director in the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Ireland. Prior to this she served as the EU Ambassador to South Sudan. Dr Walsh has worked for Ireland’s DFA since 2009, and previously served as the Ambassador of Ireland to Sierra Leone and Liberia and was the Head of Irish Aid in the two countries. Before joining the DFA, Dr Walsh spent ten years working in the NGO sector and is the co-author of Getting to Zero: A Doctor and A Diplomat on the Ebola Frontline.

Two Nations, One Mission: Irish and Canadian Reflections on COP28
23 Jan 2024
IIEA
A month on from COP28, the question remains: did the COP signal a sufficient commitment by countries and stakeholders to adequately address the issue of our age?  Catherine Stewart, Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change, and Sinéad Walsh, Climate Director at Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs, have been at the forefront of their respective governments’ approaches to addressing climate change globally and have been in the ‘room where it happens’ at various UNFCCC COPs. Though traditionally like-minded on most international issues, Ireland and Canada come to the issue of climate change facing very different challenges and opportunities. Ambassador Stewart and Director Walsh offer their views on what came out of COP28 and how Canada, Ireland, and others might pursue their efforts to address global climate challenges, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and accelerate the green transition. About the speakers: Catherine Stewart was appointed as Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change in August 2022. With over 25 years in the federal government, Ambassador Stewart’s most recent role was Assistant Deputy Minister of International Affairs at Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). Since 2014, she has served in senior executive roles at ECCC including as Canada’s Chief Negotiator for Climate Change, Director General Multilateral Affairs and Climate Change, and Director General for the Americas.  Dr Sinead Walsh is Climate Director in the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Ireland. Prior to this she served as the EU Ambassador to South Sudan. Dr Walsh has worked for Ireland’s DFA since 2009, and previously served as the Ambassador of Ireland to Sierra Leone and Liberia and was the Head of Irish Aid in the two countries. Before joining the DFA, Dr Walsh spent ten years working in the NGO sector and is the co-author of Getting to Zero: A Doctor and A Diplomat on the Ebola Frontline.

Research 446: CROSSDRO: Cross-sectoral Drought Impacts in Complex European Basins
18 Jan 2024
EPA Ireland
Droughts are pervasive and hazardous events that impact multiple domains, including agriculture, water resource management, ecological management, infrastructure, waterway navigation and forestry. A drought in Ireland in 2018, had severe socio-economic and environmental impacts across sectors: agriculture suffered from reduced grass growth, fodder shortages and decreased crop yields, peatlands faced increased wildfire risk and ecological degradation and water management was challenging amid supply issues. In addition, canals, waterways, and rivers experienced weed growth, navigation problems, fishing restrictions and reduced fish health and forestry saw increased tree deaths, especially in peatland plantations. The CROSSDRO project collated a network of river flow gauges across Europe, covering the period 1962–2017, for the analysis of hydrological drought.
