Plaid. Our Sustainable Future and a Vibrant Rural Wales

Plaid Cymru knows how important our rural communities are. We believe that farming and agriculture are central to the prosperity and sustainability of our nation. The industry has some difficult challenges ahead, not least increasing production to satisfy growing global demand for food, whilst reducing its environmental footprint.

We also know that climate change is the defining issue of contemporary politics and the greatest threat we face. We are determined that through our policies on energy, housing and regeneration that Wales can be a world leader in sustainable development.
