Developing an Environment Strategy for Scotland: Discussion Paper

This discussion paper invites your views to help develop an Environment Strategy for Scotland. It takes forward the commitment in the Scottish Government's 2017/18 Programme for Government – A Nation with Ambition[1] – to develop a strategic approach on environmental policy to protect and

enhance our environment, safeguard natural capital and continue Scotland's leading role in addressing environmental challenges.

In particular, the discussion paper invites your feedback on:

  • a draft vision and set of outcomes to set out what we are collectively working to achieve through Scotland's environment and climate change policies
  • a series of knowledge accounts – based on current evidence – that will help to inform decisions over priorities for action to achieve this shared vision and outcomes.
