Natural Resource Management
Natural resources cover much more than the “environment”. They supply everything from the air we breathe to the food we eat; from the land we develop to the water we use to cool our heavy industry.
They are as fundamental to the success of our economy and the wellbeing of our people as they are to quality of the natural environment.
Demands on our natural resources are increasing so we need to find a way to work together to build healthier relationships with our environment. By managing our natural resources sustainably, we can create jobs and support sustainable housing and infrastructure to help our economy thrive.
Our aim is to sustainably manage our natural resources in a way and at a rate that can maintain and enhance the resilience of our ecosystems whilst meeting the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
Our overall aim is to ensure that Wales has increasingly resilient and diverse ecosystems that deliver economic, environmental and social benefits.
