Climate change

​Climate change is one of the most serious threats facing the world. It presents a huge challenge to Scotland's nature.

Scottish Natural Heritage has a major role in tackling the effects of climate change.   See SNH's Chief Executive, Francesca Osowska, giving an outline of the challenges that face us, along with the following pages presenting what action we are taking on the current climate change emergency.

You can also have a look at our information sheet below, setting out why a nature-rich future is our best response to climate change.
