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 that offers a framework to create a safe and just space for humanity to exist.

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 refreshes the Welsh Doughnut for 2020. It updates and amends the 2015 Welsh Doughnut report by Malcolm Sayers of Cambium Advocacy. It provides a snapshot of Wales’ status by assessing its current position against the suggested set of domains and indicators five years on from the original report.
