3. How does the Devon Climate Assembly relate to the Devon Carbon Plan?
The independent Net-Zero Task Force developed an Interim Devon Carbon Plan (IDCP) during 2020 which is available online. The IDCP identified a number of controversial and challenging issues that required further public input via the Devon Climate Assembly.
The Devon Climate Emergency partnership has developed responses to the recommendations of the Assembly. These responses include proposed actions to add to the Devon Carbon Plan when it is published in its final form in August 2022. Figure 2 illustrates the process.
Given the urgency of addressing the climate emergency, partners have been Taking Action to implement the IDCP whilst the Assembly took place and continue to do so.
