Question S1W-34855

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S1F-2038 by Mr Jack McConnell on 5 September 2002, whether a copy of its "clear strategy" on sustainable development is available in the Scottish Parliament Information Centre and, if so, what the strategy is called.

In April 2002, we published Meeting the Needs… Priorities, Actions and Targets for sustainable development in Scotland , which sets out our vision for sustainable development in Scotland. We have identified resource use, energy and travel as the main priority areas for action on sustainable development, and policy-makers across the Executive are encouraged to take these priority areas into account when policy decisions are made. Meeting the Needs… sets out a range of actions being taken to address these priority areas. It also lists a set of indicators and targets to help us to monitor our progress. Information on progress on each of the indicators, and summaries of the main actions we are taking to achieve our targets were published in Indicators of Sustainable Development for Scotland in February 2003.
