Roscommon farmers are invited to participate in a study regarding the challenges they face when it comes to Ireland's net zero emissions policy.
The study is being conducted by Think-Tank for Action on Social Change and aims to provide climate solutions to support farmers in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Earlier versions of the study were piloted in rural towns in Donegal and Dublin, but this is the first county-level study.
Climate Justice Researcher Kieran Harrahill is hoping to talk to several farmers in the county to understand their views on sustainable agricultural issues:
'What we are looking at is all of county Roscommon but just looking at why agriculture is important to farmers, what do they think is the challenges facing farmers and would they like to be supported in.
I suppose understand from there own perspectives as people who have farmed all their lives why is it important to them and what do they see as the issues coming down the tracks.
wee are hoping to engage with as many farm organizations and local marts are a great a place to get as much input as we can.'
More information on partaking in the study is available on the TASC website under the People’s Transition section.
