Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action
Supporting a Just Transition: Discussion (Resumed)
Mr. Kieran Mulvey:
From my own experience in inner city regeneration, we laid out a medium-term plan and a long-term plan in a multiplicity of areas, including crime, drugs, education and social services. The midlands is a different type of project but the principles are the same. How does one lay out a plan that highlights and segments the particular priorities and how they would be done over a period of time? I do not know whether the issue the Deputy raised will be in that or not. This will be well documented. It will be tested. I am sure that some will succeed and others may fall by the wayside. It will have to be documented because others will have to learn from either the successes or the failures. Hopefully there are no failures but at least we will document what works and what does not work. I imagine that when we come to lay out the planning, we will detail the projects that may be undertaken and why others were not accepted.
