He says climate change is one of the 'most important challenges' that we now face as a nation.

The Taoiseach says the UN's landmark report on climate change is significant and timely.

Yesterday, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, on which sits Maynooth University's Prof. Peter Thorne, warned of a 'code red' situation for humanity if global warming is not tackled urgently.

Micheal Martin said translating the findings of the IPCC report into policy and action is one of the 'most important challenges' that we now face as a nation.

The Taoiseach also reaffirmed Ireland's commitment to fully participating and supporting the COP 26 climate summit due to take place in November.
