Climate change and the Well-Being and Future Generations Act

Climate change is integral to all the well being goals, which recognise that the case for action on climate change is clear and fundamental to out future prosperity and future resilience of our communities.

The Well-Being and Future Generations Act has strengthened action on climate change in a numbers of ways:  

  • The Future Trends report will need to take into account climate risk using the Climate Change Risk Assessment  
  • Public bodies will need to take into account the Future Trends Report and the CCRA when developing their plans in achieving the goals under the WBFG Act
  • Climate change will be a key part of the role of the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales where the Commissioner can provide advice or assistance to a public body (which includes providing advice on climate change).
