Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action
Reduction of Carbon Emissions of 51% by 2030: Discussion (Resumed)
Dr. Oliver Moore:
That was mostly a point for Macra na Feirme. I agree that ecologists are part of BRIDE. That is how it works. It costs more, but it is money well spent. One could say it is part of rural regeneration. I am thinking of a more landscape approach to how the countryside is starting to be shaped. I agree that we need more initiatives like BRIDE where ecologists get involved in helping farmers to make the right decisions.
