The Climate Change Commission for Wales (CCCW) brings together key sectors and organisations across Wales to build agreement on the action needed to tackle the challenges of climate change in Wales.
The Commission is an independent body providing leadership and advice to Welsh Government, as well as being an open and trusted source of information, on climate change.
What does the Commission do?
The Commission’s work is central to the Welsh Government’s efforts to tackle climate change. Its main roles are to:
- Provide clear leadership on tackling both the causes and effects of climate change in Wales;
- Build agreement on the action needed in Wales to address climate change, and engage all sectors in this process;
- Work to remove barriers to delivering the climate change agenda and advise on solutions where appropriate;
- Advise on the development of Welsh Government policies and programmes;
- Monitor progress and report annually;
- Be proactive in sharing advice and good practice on climate change action.
