SPICe publishes blog by Dr Annie Yang

The Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe) recently published a blog by Dr Annie Yang titled 'Climate change plan update and Scottish woodland creation: getting the balance right'.

The blog examines multiple roles of Scottish woodlands in tackling the climate emergency and biodiversity loss as set out in the recent Scottish Government Climate Change Plan Update.

This blog is a follow-up to Dr Yang's recent Scottish Parliament Academic Fellowship, which resulsted in her publishing a SPICe briefing titled ‘The Multiple Roles of Scottish Woodlands’. The briefing provides an overview of existing policies and strategies related to forest creation, management, and use in Scotland, for multiple objectives, and the role of forests in light of the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
