Climate change is the way the world's climate is changing as a result of the level of gases in the atmosphere.
We explain how we are working to tackle the causes and effects of climate change in our Climate Change Strategy for Wales. In it we set ambitious commitments to tackle the causes and consequences of climate change in a sustainable way. Our approach sets the stage for Wales to be a leader in tackling climate change.
We have introduced legislation in Wales which puts sustainable development at the centre of government and the public service in Wales. The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act places climate change at the heart of the Government, requiring a whole Government approach. The Environment (Wales) Act complements thisby establishing a clear statutory basis for decision making, fully recognises the central importance of climate change.
Unchecked climate change is one of the most serious global threats the world faces. It threatens the basic elements of life for people and environments around the world – for example access to water, food production, health and the use of land.
We can do something about climate change, if all of us work together. As a society we need to do two things to tackle the challenge of climate change:
- we need to reduce the greenhouse gases we produce through changing the way we produce and use energy
- we need to prepare for the changes that are already happening because of the greenhouse gases which have already been produced.
