Today we have published the consultation on ‘Shaping Wales’ Future: Using national milestones and indicators to measure our nation’s progress – Proposals for setting the first wave of national milestones for Wales and seeking views on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the national indicators.
The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on setting national milestones for Wales that will assist Ministers in assessing progress towards achieving the seven well‑being goals as set out in the Well‑being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
The consultation will also ask whether any revisions need to be made to the existing national indicators following the experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The consultation will run from 1 September to 26 October 2021 during which time we will be undertaking a programme of engagement to raise the profile of this important work and seek wider views.
It’s important that we draw on the views and experiences of people across Wales as we carry out this work and we invite you to contribute!
The Minister for Social Justice has published a Written Statement to launch the consultation.
