The Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Climate Impacts Group (DCIoS CIG) wishes to enlist additional resource to help prepare a strategic-level Adaptation Strategy, that will: a) Identify and evaluate the risks and opportunities for the region arising from or affected by climate change and how their magnitude and/or likelihood is expected to change b) Set out how the region can create the conditions and capacity for everyone to act on adapting to climate change together c) Identify priority impacts and actions for regional collaboration d) Be clear about the time horizon for the Plan, how it will be monitored, how often the plan will be reviewed and by who.
The deliverables are:
o A climate risk and opportunity assessment for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly
o The Adaptation Plan: Creating the conditions for everyone to act on adapting to climate change together - How adaptation planning will take place and be monitored across DCIoS
o An Action Plan: Priority actions for regional collaboration over the next 5 years
There is a set budget of 25,000 from the Environment Agency Flood Defence Grant in Aid to complete this work.
