The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 received Royal Assent in April 2015, with most of its provisions coming into force from 1 April 2016. The Act is concerned with improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales. It aims to put sustainable development at the centre of decision-making, and is designed to ensure actions meet the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
