Dear Environment and Sustainability Committee,


I support the campaign for a strong Well-being of Future Generations Bill. I would like to see the Bill strengthened by:


• Adding in targets to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases • Including a strong duty on public bodies to aim to achieve sustainable development in everything they do • Adding a clear definition of sustainable development • Properly considering the impact Wales has on people and the environment overseas • Boosting the powers of the Commissioner and making the role accountable to Assembly Members rather than Welsh Ministers


Clear targets need for :-


All energy produced from renewable sources.


All buildings to be fully insulated.  New buildings to be zero carbon.


All forms of transport to be low-carbon.


Reduction, reuse and recycling to achieved zero waste.


A large reduction in areas of livestock farming, together with large-scale afforestation of Wales's uplands and a large increase in crop (including fruit and vegetable) production.


Extend marine conservation zones to most of the Welsh coastline.


A sustainable fishing industry in Wales.


Populated low-lying areas to be fully protected from flooding.


Please consider my views as you scrutinise the legislation over the coming weeks.


Yours sincerely


Abergavenny and Crickhowell Friends of the Earth
