Co-Production and Sustainable Development in Wales

Welsh Government
Start date:
January 2013
April 2013

Brook Lyndhurst undertook research for the Welsh Government to investigate the potential role of co-production models in sustainable development.

The objectives of the research were to assess the applicability of co-production models to the work of the Welsh Government and its delivery partners, and produce a set of principles for developing environmental co-production projects in Wales.

The research was based on a rapid evidence review of co-production models and case-studies to highlight key barriers and success factors in the delivery of co-production on the ground. A workshop and interviews were also undertaken with key individuals within the Welsh Government and its delivery partners.
