Working with others
'Climate Change and the Natural Heritage - Scottish Natural Heritage's Approach and Action Plan' sets out our strategic priorities and the key actions for delivering them over the next few years. The statement makes clear our concern about climate change which we view as the most serious risk to the nature and landscapes over coming decades. It sets out our strong support for mitigation and adaptation measures, and identifies our objectives with respect to each.
We have reviewed the synergies between our Climate Change Action Plan and the Action Plans already published by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Forestry Commission Scotland , and that being prepared by Historic Scotland . Our four-agency statement on 'Action on Climate Change' clearly sets out how we are taking forward our climate change responsibilities together. This joint approach is helping to deliver the commitments made through the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009 and the Scottish Government Adaptation Framework .
We work along with a wide range of partners and other public bodies on climate change. For example, Scottish Natural Heritage is an active partner in the United Kingdom Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP) which brings together scientists, government, its agencies and NGOs to provide co-ordinated advice on climate change impacts around our coast and in our seas.
We also work on the Inter-Agency Climate Change Forum , the IACCF, which aims to provide strategic direction for UK and international work on climate change and nature conservation. The IACCF publication, "Biodiversity and Climate Change - a summary of impacts in the UK " gives an overview of the evidence of climate change impacts on the marine, terrestrial and freshwater environments across the UK.
