Scotland's new 10-year Honey Bee Health Strategy 2022-23

Scotland’s new 10-year Honey Bee Health Strategy 2022-23 has been published today [Thursday 30th June 2022].

The Strategy has been developed in conjunction with the Bee Health Improvement Partnership (BHIP) and has taken into account the review of the previous strategy and the results of the SG honey bee health survey. 
Its main aim is “Working in partnership to achieve a healthy and sustainable population of honey bees in Scotland”.
The strategy details five pillars which will outline the ways of working which we will base our actions over the next 10 years:

 Education, Training and Knowledge Transfer

 Communication and partnership working across government, operational partners, stakeholders and all of those with an interest in honey bees in Scotland

Pest and Disease surveillance, prevention, diagnosis, and control

 Research and Development.

 On-going review of the regulatory framework

The Strategy will be the overarching document which will be accompanied by an Implementation Plan. This will be a ‘living’ document detailing more specifically the actions which the BHIP will deliver in order to achieve the desired outcomes for honey bee health in Scotland. The Plan will be updated regularly following quarterly BHIP meetings and published on the Scottish Government website on our Bee Health pages.
