Devon Climate Emergency
Both North Devon and Torridge District Councils signed the Devon Climate Declaration. We are members of the Devon Climate Emergency Response Group, working with partners to create a Devon Carbon Plan, and an Adaptation Plan for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
The group has three objectives:
- Improve the resilience of Devon's environment against the effects of climate change.
- Facilitate the reduction of carbon emissions to net-zero by 2050 at the latest, to include substantial nature improvement to absorb carbon.
- Prepare Devon's communities for the necessary adaptations to infrastructure and services to respond to a warmer world.
