Resource or Project Abstract

"In 2003 the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) Secretariat published its Implementation Plan
for global climate observations. Each signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on
Climate Change (UNFCCC) is required to take action to implement those elements of the Plan relevant
to them. In 2005 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided funding for a coordinator to
look in detail at the Plan and determine the status of its implementation in Ireland.
In order to oversee the review of the GCOS Implementation Plan a steering committee was set
up with representatives from the EPA, Met Éireann and the Marine Institute. This report is the
outcome of that process. It has been reviewed by a number of national and international experts in
climate observation."
