In February 2019, a new Council Partnership Framework was launched.

Most Councils/ Local Authorities were already taking actions to support pollinators on public land. Many also work with local community groups, residents’ associations and schools to help raise awareness of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan. To better support these efforts and to better promote the work being undertaken, this framework was developed to recognise Councils as partners of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan.

At the end of each year, Council Partners are asked to report on their actions for pollinators during the year. Some councils have only recently become partners, so will not report until the end of 2020. You can find out about what some of our council partners have achieved in 2019 through the reports below:
