Monitoring and reporting actions by all partners

The aim of Y Bannau: The Future is to galvanise action across the National Park and beyond. Monitoring and reporting will be inclusive of all partners taking action together. 

Monitoring and reporting the five missions, and Doughnut indicators

The five missions adopted in Y Bannau: The Future are chosen because they are biggest shifts needed to achieve a sustainable future for the National Park. It is therefore important to measure and report on progress towards achieving the missions, and on wider indicators of National Park sustainability – the extent to which ecological ceiling (Planetary Boundaries) and the social foundation (Sustainable Development Goals) are being breached.

A series of indicators have been selected as the best metrics for understanding and tracking change in the National Park in relation to the Doughnut Economics:


The indicators have been chosen because they represent the best direct metric or proxy, and because it is envisaged that data will be available to track change over a long timescale. Indicators were identified through detailed workshop sessions with expert contributions from BBNPA officers and the National Park’s Stakeholder Reference Panel.


Several different timescales are important in considering the sustainable future of the National Park. 

Updates on the BBNPA website and other platforms, and that of partners, sharing information about actions and outcomes, celebrating successes, and highlighting opportunities and challenges.
