Devon Climate Emergency Project

Creating a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon – where people and nature thrive.

Devon Climate Emergency Project is a collaborative project between a range of organisations from across Devon who have declared a climate and ecological emergency and endorse the principles of the Devon Climate Declaration. Together we are creating…

Devon Carbon Plan

The Net-Zero Task Force is using its specialist knowledge to produce an evidence-led Devon Carbon Plan. This will consider the earliest, credible, date that should be set for net-zero emissions.

Devon Adaptation Plan

The Climate Impacts Group is using its collective knowledge to create a Devon Adaptation Plan. This will consider how Devon and its citizens can adapt to living in a warmer world.

Current Activity

As well as working to create a Devon Carbon Plan which will be a roadmap to a net-zero carbon Devon; Devon Climate Emergency (DCE) partner organisations are also been working on many projects in the short term.

What we do

A range of public, private, and voluntary organisations from across Devon came together on 22nd May 2019 to form the Devon Climate Emergency Response Group.

The project is aiming to create a resilient, net-zero carbon Devon- where people and nature thrive.

Achieving this will require collaborative action from everyone across Devon.
