Minister for Environment & Climate Change to Rio conference
Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (SCCS) has called on the Scottish Government to lead by example at Rio+20 - the UN conference on sustainable development in Brazil next week.

On the eve of Climate Change Minister Stewart Stevenson’s departure for the conference, SCCS has urged him to use Scotland’s progressive stance on environmental issues to influence the global talks.

The call came as Mr Stevenson addressed the SCCS AGM in Edinburgh.

The coalition, which includes more than 60 organisations, believes Scotland has the opportunity to act as a global champion for action on climate change.

The announcement today of the Scottish Government's Climate Justice Fund was welcomed by the Stop Climate Chaos Scotland coalition.
