Information on the Population Programme which aims to deliver Scotland’s Population Strategy.


The following links contain information on the Scottish Government Population Programme; a cross-cutting programme of work which aims to deliver Scotland’s Population Strategy, which articulates a vision for Scotland’s population profile to provide a platform for economic success, prosperity and wellbeing across Scotland’s communities.

This programme of work is articulated in Scotland’s first Population Strategy, published in 2021, which sets out how Scottish Government and partners identify and respond to Scotland’s long term demographic challenges and trends at local and national level. Delivery of the strategy is overseen by the Scottish Government’s Ministerial Population Taskforce.
