An event to celebrate collaboration and developing partnerships to meet the growing challenges facing the Welsh environment recently took place at the Senedd.
Hosted by Natural Resources Wales, the Making the Connections event focussed on how NRW works with other organisations for a greener, safer and prosperous Wales.
Following keynote speeches, an informal networking session took place where AMs were able learn more about specific areas of partnership working.
Topics including waste crime, tourism, timber sector, land management, education, health and wellbeing, metal mines, flooding and LIFE projects were represented by organisations as diverse as the Welsh Revenue Authority, Confor, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, Brecon Beacons, Pembrokeshire and Snowdonia National Parks, Met Office, Public Health Wales, Coal Authority, Cardiff County Council and the farming unions.
Eluned met with several representatives and heard about the great work being done to ensure that our natural resources are promoted and sustainably maintained.
Commenting on the event, the Mid & West Wales AM said:
“I am pleased NRW is taking this opportunity to showcase the work they carry out with their partners and for us all to have this opportunity to build networks and new partnerships.
“It is vital we all work together to reverse the effects of climate change and respond to the challenges of the climate emergency.”
