Devon in the Future

4.1 Vision and Objectives

The vision is a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon where people and nature thrive. 

A set of eight objectives demonstrates concisely what this Plan needs to achieve by 2050 at the latest to reduce emissions, alongside work to improve resilience to the changing climate through the Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Climate Adaptation Plan. These are shown below.  Indicators to monitor progress towards achieving these are proposed at Section 12 of this Plan.

The implementation of the vision and objectives brings opportunities to create a fairer, healthier, more resilient and more prosperous society. Some examples are described in Section 1.5 and further co-benefits of reducing carbon emissions are highlighted throughout this Plan.
