The Welsh Doughnut: A framework for environmental sustainability and social justice
The world faces twin challenges: delivering a decent standard of living for everyone, while living within our environmental limits. These two interwoven concerns are captured in Oxfam’s Doughnut model, which offers a framework to create a safe and just space for humanity to exist within.
At the national level, the Welsh Doughnut model suggests areas of life that might constitute a social floor below which no one in Wales should fall, and begins the process of identifying which environmental boundaries might be useful for incorporation into a Welsh national analysis. This report provides a snapshot of Wales’ status by assessing its current position against this suggested set of domains and indicators.
