This report aims to examine the impact of the ongoing transition to zero emissions on groups who experience one or many forms of structural disadvantage in County Clare. Underpinned by a human rights-based approach, focusing specifically on realising the socio-economic rights of Clare residents, the report makes recommendations and contributes to the discussion of how Just Transition planning and policy in Clare can begin to address underlying inequalities and ensure that those who experience poverty, as well as the most marginalised in society, are protected and benefit from the transition.
Fair Clare: Securing Socio-Economic Rights and a Just Transition in County Clare was researched by TASC and is part of a wider six-month pilot project led by Clare Public Participation Network (Clare PPN) in collaboration with Clare County Council, Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board, and Clare Local Development Company.
TASC receives support under the Scheme to Support National Organisations (SSNO) which is funded by the Government of Ireland through the Department of Rural and Community Development.
