To ask the Scottish Government by what date it will publish its post-2020 biodiversity goals.
Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 23 October 2018
The Convention on Biological Diversity Conference of the Parties (CoP15) will take place in Beijing, China in October 2020 to finalise the next set of international biodiversity targets. Scotland is working with other UK administrations to contribute to the development of these targets.
In due course, it is intended to prepare a refreshed biodiversity strategy for Scotland to take account of the new international targets.
