Abstract

Considering the biodiversity and climate crises, and following the Covid-19 pandemic, radical transformative change is needed in the ways we govern and plan for protected areas. This Policy Spotlight will discuss Scotland’s protected areas in the context of the UN SDGs and uncover the opportunities that come from adaptive governance and collaborative management of these valuable natural features using two Scottish case studies. Implications for NP4 and recommendations for next steps are also outlined.
