The Hope We Have
Alistair is SCIAF's Chief Executive and has worked in the international relief and development sector for 25 years. Alistair knows that Scotland has a major responsibility to lead the way for lowering carbon emissions caused by the catastrophic industrial revolution.
"The world’s poorest are already suffering most because of the changing climate. As the first of the industrialised nations to begin burning fossil fuels, Scotland has a particularly strong responsibility to help tackle the climate emergency.
"We must all work much harder together to tackle the consequences of climate change. People power has created much of the momentum behind the climate change movement. From school pupils striking to demand action to people marching in the streets to have their voices heard, the fate of our planet has captured the public’s imagination like never before."
