Under the Government of Wales Act 2006 we have a legal duty to sustainable development.
It states that:
Welsh Ministers must make a scheme ("the sustainable development scheme") setting out how they propose to promote sustainable development.
Two other key duties apply:
- Welsh Ministers must report each year on how the proposals set out in the scheme have been implemented; and
- After every National Assembly for Wales election Welsh Ministers must also publish a report assessing how effective they have been (through the scheme) in promoting sustainable development.
The latest annual report was published in March 2016. This report fulfils our duties under section 79(6) of the Government of Wales Act 2006 and Section 80 of the Climate Change Act 2008. It covers our progress on sustainable development and climate change since April 2014.
We will be moving to a new way of reporting for the next Assembly term, as required by the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. As such this report will be the last of it’s type. It also features for the last time a commentary from Peter Davies, outgoing Commissioner for Sustainable Futures and Chair of the Climate Change Commission for Wales.
