Biodiversity Strategy reporting

Read the reports on the progress made in achieving the aims of the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy.

Route Map progress

Read the second interim report on Route Map progress prepared on behalf of the Scottish Government. SNH has prepared this report as part of our leading role coordinating and championing the 2020 Challenge for Scotland’s Biodiversity and the Scotland’s Biodiversity – A Route Map to 2020.

Grouped under six ‘Big Steps for Nature’, the Route Map brings together the key work needed to deliver on the 2020 Challenge. Each Big Step for Nature has one or more ambitious targets, which are underpinned by ‘Priority Projects’. These projects are delivered by a wide range of partners through a suite of actions.

This interim report highlights the small number of actions that are not on track, assesses why they are not on track and suggests remedies.

Aichi Targets progress

In September 2016 we developed an Aichi interim report (2016) covering 13 of the 20 Aichi Targets.  There is now an updated Aichi interim report (2017) assessing progress on all 20 internationally agreed Aichi Targets set by the Convention on Biological Diversity.
