SLA Response to the Social Renewal Advisory Boards report If not now when? – 15th December 2021
In October 2021 the outputs of the SLA short term working groups were presented at a debate on 7th October 2021 to gather membership views and establish an agreed SLA response to assist the Scottish Government moving forward on four landscape and place public policy opportunities in order to strengthen the role in delivering Scotland’s national outcomes and Scotland’s contribution to embedding the principles of the European Landscape Convention and UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Social Renewal Advisory Board (SARB) was set up by the Scottish Government to present transformational ideas on how to deliver real change for Scotland after the pandemic. Working Group 2 responded to their recommendations in the context of how landscape can address the current issues of inequality and exclusion faced by those in our most deprived communities.
The responses to the following key policy areas will be available on the website by mid January 2022
- The Draft Climate Action Plan – the approach to large scale landscape change from agriculture, renewables and forestry
- 30 by 30 Targets – what does this mean for Scotland’s protected areas and the integration of landscape and biodiversity whilst tackling climate change
- The Environment Strategy –landscape indicators to link to the Strategy Vision as well as our National Outcomes and the UNSDG
