Natural Resources Wales Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru is a Welsh Government sponsored body, which became operational from 1 April 2013, when it took over the management of the natural resources of Wales.  It was formed from a merger of the Countryside Council for Wales, Environment Agency Wales, and the Forestry Commission Wales, and also assumes some other roles formerly taken by Welsh Government.

NRW’s purpose is to “pursue sustainable management of natural resources” and “apply the principles of sustainable management of natural resources” as stated in the Environment (Wales) Act 2016.
