About the Project

SMART NATURE: Beacons to Bay is part of a consultation project set up by Swansea Environmental Forum. It will help gather views and ideas on how to manage natural resources along the Tawe Corridor and Swansea Bay for the benefit of people the environment and the economy.

The project is funded by Natural Resources Wales, the government agency responsible for most environmental issues in Wales. The information gathered through this website, and associated consultation events, will be used to inform the work and plans of Natural Resource Wales and Swansea Environmental Forum.

Natural Resources Wales is taking an ecosystems approach to managing our natural resources. This means that resources will be managed in a way that enhances the health of the environment, whilst also providing better benefits for society and businesses.

The following video provides an introduction to the ecosystems services approach:
