Environmental Surveying and Monitoring Programme

In 2015 and as part of the Wild Atlantic Way Operational Programme, Fáilte Ireland prepared an Environmental Surveying and Monitoring Strategy. The purpose of this was to work with and demonstrate to our stakeholders and partners that we are committed to the sustainable development of the Wild Atlantic Way, and to be able to pre-empt and avoid environmental effects in the future should they occur.

An external monitoring group comprising local authorities, community development groups, environmental groups, agencies and departments has been set up to oversee and guide the monitoring programme over the lifetime of the operational programme 2015-2019.

The results of the 2016 and 2015 monitoring programmes can be downloaded below.
