Answered By:

The focus of the Climate Change Action Plan was on overall carbon reduction targets, and designing a programme of measures to meet them. The Plan contains some analysis of carbon emissions from aviation by different socio-economic groups (page 169 of the report), some analysis of social housing and the fuel poor (page 53) and of the linakages between London and other global communities (page 11). Additional work is ongoing to raise awareness of climate change issues amongst London's diverse population.
