Wales leads the world with sustainable development

As Climate Change Week New York comes to an end, Wales is being celebrated as the only nation to legislate for a sustainable future. 

Many of the goals set by the UN this week have already been incorporated into the Welsh Government's 'Well-being of Future Generations Act' of 2015.

Nikhil Seth, Director of Division for Sustainable Development, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations said:

"We hope that what Wales is doing today the world will do tomorrow. Action, more than words, is the hope for our current and future generations.”
