We have just published a briefing on the Scottish Government's draft Update to the Climate Change Plan 2018 - 2032 digitalpublications.parliament.scot/ResearchBriefi… 1/4
The Scottish Government’s draft Update sets out Scotland's path, across eight key sectors, to achieving a 75% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and ultimately net-zero emissions by 2045. 2/4
Scotland's greenhouse gas emissions have nearly halved in the last 30 years, and they will need to more than half again in the next 11. Emissions have reduced notably in the electricity, industry and waste sectors, but less so in buildings, transport and agriculture. 3/4
COP 26, a major UN climate conference will be held in Glasgow in November 2021. It will have to put real targets in place to phase out coal, protect forests and to
champion clean energy and transport so that the world can transition to net-zero in a way that is fair and just. 4/4

Morning! I'm Iain McIver, SPICe's EU researcher. Some reflections on #euco decision to extend the #article50 #Brexit process last night. See #council conclusions for more details data.consilium.europa.eu/doc/document/X… 1/10
#euco met in its EU27 formation meaning the UK Government was not part of the decision-making process. Instead, the Prime Minister spoke to #euco ahead of its considerations. 2/10
The UK will not now leave the European Union on 12 April. Instead a flexible extension has been granted to 31 October. If the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified before then, the UK will leave the EU at the end of the month in which the Agreement is ratified. 3/10
