The Scottish Executive thanks the members of the Scottish Climate Change Programme Stakeholder Group for their input over the course of the review.
We also thank everyone who responded to the public consultation exercise on the review of the Scottish Climate Change Programme. The Executive was delighted with the level and quality of responses received. A summary is available on the Scottish Executive website. 1
The Executive is grateful to all of the external research consultants who have made a valuable contribution, through a range of research and analysis, to the review process and to the development of our revised strategic approach.
We also recognise the valuable contribution made by the Environment and Rural Development Committee through its Parliamentary Inquiry into climate change.
Finally, the Executive acknowledges the significant contribution made to the analytical work on the review of the Scottish Programme by James McGowan, who sadly passed away in October 2005. This new Programme is dedicated to his memory.
