On the 22nd November 2018, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Forum on Natural Capital convened their second high-level roundtable in Edinburgh to determine how to take forward the Scottish Government's commitments of protecting and rebuilding natural capital, with a particular focus around preventative spend. Bringing together 19 public sector bodies in Scotland, including sportscotland, NHS - Health Scotland and Scottish Enterprise, the event saw an increase in the number of organisations involved compared to the previous year.
The day's discussions centred around three key themes, namely 'Getting traction', 'Developing local and regional approaches', and 'Integrating natural capital in our own work'. At the end of the session, members identified some possible next steps around the three themes of 'communications', 'local & regional approaches', and 'internal integration and professionalising our approach', including possible workshops, task groups or virtual networks.
