This will help boost business growth, training and job opportunities, particularly in rural communities, thus contributing to increased prosperity A resilient Wales – increased use of sustainable timber products is underpinned by further and sustainable forestry planting. This will support flood protection measures for key risk areas. Economic development in rural areas of Wales will help to build more cohesive communities A healthier Wales – increased forestry planting brings about multiple health benefits. Timber buildings have recently been demonstrated as providing healthier living and learning environments in a number of Scandinavian studies A more equal Wales – the study will help to bring economic prosperity to rural communities in Wales, thus supporting greater wealth equality across the regions of Wales. A Wales of cohesive communities – increased wealth in our rural communities will help to stabilise populations as in particular, young people are able to find well paid employment rather than having to leave rural communities to find work. In addition, the availability of increased affordable housing in our rural communities will support young people and key workers to find accommodation. A Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language – the study and project will follow the principles of Welsh Government Welsh language policy bringing the findings to a wider audience in Wales. A globally responsible Wales – the use of locally sourced product (timber) will help to reduce Wales’ carbon footprint as we work to enable the construction industry to use increased amounts of local and homegrown timber.
