Climate Change and Biodiversity Community Forum

The South Hams Climate Change and Biodiversity Community Forum was established in November 2020 following an expression of interest exercise conducted in October 2020. The Forum enables members to work with officers to coordinate existing and emerging activity and initiatives as well as feeding into the ever evolving Climate Change and Biodiversity Action Plan, a two-way flow of ideas and actions.

The Forum meets at least quarterly but often every two months. Key actions from each meeting are recorded and will be published here. A list of our members is as follows;
