Oct 15, 2008 Comments Off on Two new research projects for Feasta: Carbon Cycles and Sinks, and Smart Taxes by

Feasta has been awarded multi-annual funding from the Irish Department of the Environment for two policy research projects:

Carbon Cycles and Sinks – to develop policies which will enable the Irish land mass to become a carbon sink rather than a source of greenhouse emissions. This project will be led by Richard Douthwaite, and Corinna Byrne has been hired as project coordinator and lead researcher.

Smart Taxes – to research, design, develop and adapt fiscal and market-based mechanisms to increase environmental, social and economic sustainability in Ireland. This project will be led by Emer O’Siochru, and Ellie Cuffe has been hired as project coordinator and lead researcher.
