A living Wales – a new framework

The Welsh Assembly are developing a Natural Environment Framework (NEF). The framework will have a stronger focus on sustainable land and marine management in Wales based on the ecosystem approach. The framework will also address climate change pressures on the environment.

Start of consultation: 15/09/2010

End of consultation: 31/12/2010

This new framework aims to secure sustainable and integrated management of land and water by making the long-term health of ecosystems and the services they provide central to decision making. The document sets a broad direction of travel for future work. The detailed delivery will be informed by individual work streams and take shape over the coming year.
