Hub calls on Wales to fight for a strong Well-being of Future Generations Bill

In a blog post last week, Hub Coordinator Hannah Sheppard challenged the people of Wales to live up to Desmond Tutu’s description of them as having “big hearts” and “the kick of a mule” by fighting for a strong Well-being of Future Generations Bill.

So far, the latest stage hasn’t delivered the amendments suggested by the Sustainable Development Alliance which made a strong case for the inclusion of an international aspect, with emphasis on ethical procurement of foreign goods and Wales’ contribution to climate change.

The Alliance argues that the “Wales We Want” can’t be achieved by isolating Wales from the rest of the world. 'The well-being of people in Wales is linked to people and the environment all around the world.' Hannah wrote, 'Our fuel, our food, our paper and timber all come from international sources.'

Stage 3 discussion of amendments will take place next Tuesday, March 10th. You can watch it online, in English and Welsh, on Senedd.tv.

The Wales Africa Partnership – a “new and exciting programme”

A new Welsh Government-funded programme of the Welsh Centre for International Affairs will bring together four leading international and volunteering networks to get individuals and organisations engaging in work that benefits both Wales and Africa.

The new Head of the Partnership, announced earlier this month, is Llandeilo-born Cat Jones. Cat has 15 years’ experience in humanitarian relief and development and has worked for DFID, the United Nation Children’s Fund and the International Rescue Committee.

Following the public launch in May, the Partnership will continue the work currently provided by Wales Africa Community Links and the Hub. It will also offer funding for small-size organisations involved in Wales-Africa projects.


Wales International Development Sector is a vibrant mix of civil society and volunteer groups as well as national and international development agencies.
