The conference write-up focused on the workshop sessions
Featuring a Ministerial address from Environment Minister Hannah Blythyn AM, key note speakers, practitioner talks and workshops, the conference is a key tool in Wales’ aspirations to enhance biodiversity and ecosystem resilience in Wales and an opportunity to develop nature recovery actions in combination with wider policy initiatives. Networking sessions and opportunities for collaboration and future partnerships are a central theme of the event.
Wales has unique legislation in place to deliver nature recovery and multiple benefits for our environment, economy, and society. The Nature Recovery Action Plan for Wales, the Environment (Wales) Act and future land management reform post-Brexit are central to this approach. The Well-being of Future Generations Act provides a framework for decision-making in the delivery of multiple benefits to current and future generations through well-being planning which need to be reflected in our new approach. The approach sets out the links between environment, health and well-being and the opportunities and challenges which we can address through our plans and actions at multiple scales.
