Asked by: Murdo Fraser, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Date lodged: 21 June 2021

Question

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) ceasing to be managed by Keep Scotland Beautiful on behalf of the Scottish Government from 30 June 2021, what plans are in place to support communities to tackle climate and nature emergencies in the future.

Current status: Answered by Michael Matheson on 21 July 2021


Answer

We have provided over £110 million through our Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) to enable communities to play their part and we will continue to support community-led climate action as a key part of our just transition to net zero.

We are building on the achievements of the CCF by developing networks of regional Community Climate Action hubs and Climate Action Towns. These initiatives will run alongside the recently launched Net Zero Nation campaign which aims to showcase and inspire climate action across Scotland, including in our communities, using COP26 as a catalyst.
