The National Islands Plan provides a framework for action to meaningfully improve outcomes for island communities. The Plan sets out 13 Strategic Objectives and over one hundred commitments, to be delivered over the five-year lifetime of the Plan. The Islands (Scotland) Act 2018 requires that a report be presented to parliament each year setting out the progress made towards delivery. This Annual Report fulfils that requirement, outlining where progress has been made towards each specific commitment of the National Islands Plan, and detailing projects and resource spend where appropriate.
Additionally, the implementation of the National Islands Plan continues to be supported by both the Islands Strategic Group (ISG), the Senior Officers Group which supports the ISG and the National Islands Plan Delivery Group. The Islands Strategic Group allows for greater involvement of the relevant local authorities in helping design solutions to the challenges islanders face, whilst the Delivery Group ensures that work continues to be driven forward in a collaborative way that involves island communities.
