Ireland Summary


Ireland (70,280 sq km; 3,840,838 inhabitants) is a republic. Environmental legislation is promulgated by the Department of the Environment and Local Government. The mission of the Department is “to promote sustainable development and improve the quality of life through environmental protection, infrastructure provision, balanced regional development and good local government.” Important issues are waste legislation, noise pollution, construction, local government reform, and urban renewal.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which was established in 1993 as the competent authority for the purposes of implementing EU Directives and national regulations in the environmental area, applies environmental laws and regulations, protects the environment, and ensures that any development that occurs is sustainable. The EPA consists of four divisions (Corporate Affairs, Environmental Management & Planning, Licensing & Control and Environmental Monitoring & Laboratory Services) and operates on a regional structure with headquarters in Wexford and five regional offices.

In February 1999, the Government of Ireland established Comhar, the National Sustainable Development Partnership, as a forum for consultation and dialogue on issues related to sustainable development. Comhar, whose members are drawn from government, businesses, NGOs (environmental and social/community) and professional and academic arenas, was established with the purpose of advancing the national agenda for sustainable development, including evaluating progress, assisting in the development of suitable mechanisms and contributing to the formation of a national consensus in these matters. In 2000, parts of the Planning and Development Act, which consolidated all previous Planning Acts (e.g. urban) and much of the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations, entered into effect.
