The Environment Strategy for Scotland sets out our long-term vision for Scotland’s environment and our role in tackling the global climate and nature crises. The vision is accompanied by six supporting outcomes. These describe our goals for restoring nature, tackling climate change and using resources sustainably; and the benefits this will create for Scotland’s economy, society and global citizenship.
To monitor progress towards achieving these outcomes we have developed a set of high-level, data-driven indicators, which together form the Environment Strategy Initial Monitoring Framework. This website reports on the status of these indicators and the progress towards these outcomes, and signposts to where more detailed monitoring and evaluation information can be found.
Monitoring Framework Overview
In developing the Environment Strategy Initial Monitoring Framework, we have chosen a set of high-level indicators that provide a strategic and accessible overview of progress towards each outcome. The initial set of indicators are shown in the graphic below. Additional indicators will be explored as the Monitoring Framework is further developed.
