Route map to 2020

The 2020 Challenge for Scotland's Biodiversity sets out the major steps needed to improve the state of nature in Scotland. The work needed to deliver this is however complex and challenging.

Scotland's Biodiversity a Route Map to 2020 external site has been developed to help direct priorities for action. It is not catalogue of current and planned action but sets out six Big Steps for Nature and a number of priority projects associated with them.

The Big Steps and priority projects are summarised in Table 1 external site   supporting the Route Map.

How are we getting on?

Scottish Natural Heritage has just completed a report that presents the second interim report on Route Map progress.  This report was prepared as part of our lead role to co-ordinate and champion the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy 2020 Challenge for Scotland's Biodiversity and Route Map to 2020 on behalf of Scottish Government.

Grouped under "Six Big Steps for Nature," the Route Map brings together the key work needed to deliver on the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy: 2020 Challenge for Scotland's Biodiversity. 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.

We have also prepared a separate Aichi interim report assessing progress on the internationally agreed Aichi Targets.
