This strategy sets out our strategic direction for water policy over the next 20 years and beyond. Water is one of our greatest natural assets and an integral part of Wales’ culture, heritage and national identity.

The strategy highlights the Welsh Government’s vision to ensure that Wales continues to have a thriving water environment which is sustainably managed to support healthy communities, flourishing businesses and the environment. We want the people of Wales to receive first class, value for money, water services with water used efficiently, safely and respectfully by all.

The strategy will contribute to wider Welsh Government priorities and principles, including tackling poverty.

The water strategy for Wales is supported by a strategic environmental assessment and a habitats regulations assessment.
