About this topic
We know how important our environment is and we are committed to tackling the challenges facing it whilst also strengthening the rural economy. This includes our vision for Welsh farming which is at the heart of a sustainable countryside and rural economy.
We want to create places for people to live, work and visit that are both economically and environmentally sustainable. To do this we need to make best use of our resources to make sure we are using only our fair share. We want to improve the way we manage and regulate our land, sea, air and water.
We will do this by:
- Living within our environmental limits and acting on climate change;
- Supporting healthy eco-systems;
- Creating sustainable places for people;
- Supporting the farming, food and fisheries industries to become more sustainable and profitable;
- Controlling and trying to eradicate animal diseases;
- Supporting the food production industry and apply best practice with the dairy, horticulture and fisheries sectors; and
- Diversifying and strengthening the rural economy.
