The statutory guidance being prepared by the Executive under Section 3E (3) of the Planning Act will confirm that the need to tackle climate change should be seen as the principle challenge of sustainable development.

The programme commits Scotland to an ambitious target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and puts in place a framework to help reduce Scotland's vulnerability to the effects of climate change.
