State of Natural Resources Report (SoNaRR)

The Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee will be considering the State of Natural Resources Report.  The Environment (Wales) Act 2016 requires Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to prepare and publish a State of Natural Resources Report (SoNaRR) in accordance with the legislative timeframe provided for in the Act.


SoNaRR is an evidence base to provide information on the current state of our natural resources. In doing so it will make available the information needed for the Welsh Ministers to set priorities for action at the national level.

SoNaRR will be published by NRW on a five year cycle, the only exception to which will be the second report that will be published four years after the first in order to bring it in line with the ordinary Assembly election cycle provided for under the Government of Wales Act 2006.
