The Council of the Isles of Scilly is a member of the Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Climate Impacts Group (DCIOSCIG), which coordinates climate impacts and adaptation work for the councils involved.
The Council of the Isles of Scilly is developing a Climate Change Adaptation Action Plan for communities and organisations, which complements a strategic-level Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly CISCIG Climate Change Adaptation Plan being developed at the same time.
The Terms of Reference for the DCISCIG are:
To work collaboratively with the Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly climate emergency projects operating in each of the three localities to use its expertise to help:
- to coordinate and oversee the delivery of regional action on adaptation, aligning with action on climate mitigation wherever possible
- prepare communities and organisations for the necessary adaptations to infrastructure, services and behaviours that will be required to respond to the effects of a changing climate
- improve the resilience of public health, the natural environment, our economy and infrastructure to the effects of climate change now and in the future
