Biodiversity Beyond 2020 - Scotland's Contribution

Scotland is leading the way on reporting on all 20 of the International Biodiversity (Aichi) Targets. Scotland was the first nation to develop a Natural Capital Asset Index (NCAI) and explore its use as a performance measure.

Plant genetic diversity work undertaken by Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh is world leading in terms of technique development and application for conservation or critical species. We are world leaders in the restoration of important ecosystems, and have developed partnerships and networks across Europe in order to deliver benefits for people and nature.

But what next? Join Francesca Osowska, the CEO of Scottish Natural Heritage to hear more about the challenges for Biodiversity and ecosystems and how Scotland is looking beyond 2020 to identify what more is required to protect and enhance biodiversity for the benefit of all.

Francesca Osowska was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Scottish Natural Heritage, the advisor to the Scottish Government on Nature and Landscapes, in 2017. Francesca was educated at Cambridge University where she obtained an MA in economics.  She also received an MA in European economics from the College of Europe in Bruges. She was principal private secretary to the First Minister between 2007 and 2009, then in December 2009 moved to become Director for Culture, External Affairs and Tourism. Francesca was appointed director for Housing, Regeneration and the Commonwealth Games in the Scottish Government in January 2010 and subsequently moved to the post of director for the Commonwealth Games and Sport in January 2013. Francesca was appointed as director for the Scotland Office in the UK Government in January 2015 and awarded an OBE for services to Government and the Commonwealth Games in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours in January 2015.
