NICOLA STURGEON said Scotland will play its full part in working with all nations to achieve climate goals ahead of Cop26 next month.
The First Minister delivered a Ted Talk, a lecture in front of an audience available online, in Edinburgh as Glasgow prepares to host world leaders for the UN climate summit in November.
Organised as part of Ted’s Countdown Summit series, Ms Sturgeon discussed what small countries can do to help in the climate emergency.
The SNP leader said Scotland must be careful not to leave communities behind as it transitions away from oil and gas, refusing to voice opposition to the Cambo oil field.
Ms Sturgeon’s speech was criticised by opposition MSPs, with Labour’s Monica Lennon demanding action from the Scottish government to prevent species extinction.
The Ted Talk coincides with the adoption of the Kunming Declaration on biodiversity, which calls for “urgent and integrated action” through government to prevent habitat loss.
Scotland’s last biodiversity strategy ended in 2020 and has still not been replaced.
Ms Lennon said: “We need the First Minister to roll up her sleeves and fully use her powers to save Scotland’s threatened wildlife and nature now, before it’s too late.”
