Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Climate Adaptation Strategy Open for Consultation

Climate Resilient DCIoS logo

A public consultation is being held on the draft version of the Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (DCIoS) Climate Adaptation Strategy from 9th May to 30th June 2023.

The Strategy will help communities and organisations across the Southwest better understand the risks their area might face in the future, as climate change increasingly affects the UK. It will also help them to adapt to these changes, thereby improving their preparedness and resilience and ensuring community safety.

The strategy has three parts:

  • The Risk Register, which identifies regional climate impacts and their risks and opportunities.
  • An Adaptation Plan, which sets out the conditions for everyone to act on adapting to climate change together.
  • An Action Plan, which sets out the priority actions for regional collaboration over the next five years.

Your feedback will help to shape the final version of the DCIoS Climate Adaptation Strategy. Read the Strategy and give your feedback via a short online questionnaire on the DCIoS Climate Adaptation Strategy website.

Additionally, a free webinar will take place on Tuesday 16th May, 5-6pm to explain the Adaptation Strategy in detail and will include a Q&A session. Please see the Eventbrite link to sign up here.
