Facing the Storm Together – A Pembrokeshire Approach to Community Resilience. https://vimeo.com/121924914

In 2013 TENP took up the challenge to move the issue ‘Community Resilience to Climate Change’ forward in Pembrokeshire with statutory partners, third sector partners and its communities.

This is the story of that process and the lessons learnt by the partners.

Funded by the Welsh Government and the European Social Fund under the Making the Connections project,  managed by Wales Council for Voluntary Action and locally delivered by Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services.

Project summary to date:

In June 2013 TENP was invited to work on one Environment Headline Action [out of eighteen] for Pembrokeshire’s Single Integrated Plan 2013-18, by the Pembrokeshire Environment Forum, PEF. PEF is a policy strategy group, with PCC, PCNP and Natural Resources Wales (previously Environment Agency, CCW, and Forestry Commission Wales) responsible for progress on the Single Integrated Plan’s environment actions by 2018. The Headline Action is to ‘create resilient communities able to cope with climate change’.

TENP secured some small funding from Natural Resources Wales via Pembrokeshire County Council to cover some consultancy provided by Tim Brew of Energy Education, and Howard Balmer of Preseli Green Futures. This enabled the committee to run the initial engagement work in spring 2014 with a survey and 3 events, followed by the consultants’ report. please see reports below.
