Over the summer, all five of the Writing Groups have met twice, and will meet for their third and final meetings in the coming week or so, mulling draft documents prepared by the Green City Team on the basis of meetings 1 and 2. On Monday 26th August the Green City Team and the chairs of the various groups met and hashed out a few issues (more details imminently). Participants are being asked to put aside the entire day of Monday October 12th for a conference to review the draft Action Plan.
Points to note:
The reductions target may go up from 1 million tonnes to 1.5 million tonnes of C02.
In the absence of a focus on adaptation/resilience, some are suggesting this is a Carbon Reduction Plan rather than a Climate Change Action Plan.
The second goal of the Writing Groups – to get civil society conversations going – has not (yet) been attempted.
