Natural Resources Wales
Natural Resources Wales is a new body that will influence how we and others manage, use and enjoy Wales’ natural resources to benefit people, the economy and wildlife.
On 01 April 2013, Natural Resources Wales took over the work of Countryside Council for Wales, Environment Agency Wales and Forestry Commission Wales.
It has also taken over some work we used to do.
Why was Natural Resources Wales created?
Wales faces many challenges. These include:
- challenges for the people and communities of Wales, our economy and our environment
- ensuring energy and fuel supply
- providing jobs and income
- dealing with climate change and flooding
- improving people’s health and well-being.
To meet these challenges Wales needs new ways of thinking and doing things. Natural Resources Wales was created to bring together the management of our natural resources and environment to help us make the best decisions.
