Consultation on the use of the State of the Environment Indicators
Author: Carnegie UK Trust
As an organisation interested in wellbeing, we have been engaged in debates in Scotland and at a UK level in measuring wellbeing. We support the recommendation of the Stiglitz Sen Fitoussi report that government develop a sub-dashboard on environmental indicators. Without such a sub-dashboard governments cannot properly track levels of economic, human and environmental stocks essential for our future wellbeing. We therefore support the Welsh Government’s State of the Environment Indicators report as further outlined in this short paper.
