Environment strategy: initial monitoring framework

Overview of the initial selection of indicators for the environment strategy for Scotland monitoring framework and plans for reporting progress.

2. What this document is for

This document identifies an initial set of indicators for the Environment Strategy Monitoring Framework and outlines high-level plans for reporting progress. The Monitoring Framework will be maintained as a live framework; updated, as necessary, to reflect developments in policy and evidence. This initial selection of indicators draws on an analysis of existing environmental indicators and in-depth discussions with a wide range of partners[5] and stakeholders[6]. This process has highlighted a wealth of relevant environmental data we can draw on. It has also identified some areas where additional work is needed to develop robust measures of progress. These areas will be explored as the Monitoring Framework is further developed.
