Barriers to the successful Implementation of the Well-Being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015
The Auditor General for Wales has a duty, under the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, to examine and report on the extent to which relevant public bodies have acted in accordance with the ‘sustainable development principle’ when setting and taking steps to meet ‘well-being objectives’.
The Auditor General published his first statutory Report in relation to the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 in May 2020, in line with being available 12 months prior to elections in respect of the Senedd.
The Fifth Senedd Public Accounts Committee led on examining these Reports.
An extensive inquiry, engaging with many stakeholders, was undertaken and the Committee’s Report, Delivering for Future Generations: The story so far was published in March 2021.
The Public Accounts and Public Administration Committee considered the responses to the recommendations contained in the Report during the Autumn 2021.
A joint Committee debate was held on 24 November 2021 with the Equality and Social Justice Committee on the Scrutiny of implementation of the Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015.
