Economy, Decarbonisation and Skills

How can we move to a more resilient, prosperous, and inclusive decarbonised future Welsh economy?

The transition to net zero presents an opportunity to shift to an economy that is better able to respond to future needs and supports a more equal and prosperous society. The adjustment also presents challenges that will need to be overcome including developing the skills for a green labour market. In response to these opportunities and challenges, WCPP’s Economy, Decarbonisation and Skills programme explores key questions including what a future green economy and society might look like, what it might mean for policy and practice in Wales and what investments in skills and other supporting institutions will be needed.
