The UK government has committed to delivering net zero by 2050 – but how on track are we and what needs to change in UK food and farming? Dustin Benton, policy director at Green Alliance, talks us through Chris Skidmore’s independent review of government net zero plans, and puts forward his own solutions from the Alliance’s latest report 'Shaping UK land use: priorities for food, nature and climate'.
Dustin answers these key questions:
- What did the Skidmore review say, and where might government policy go from here?
- The big picture - is the UK living up to its carbon budget?
- Where do our food and farming emissions need to be to achieve net zero by 2050?
- Under what scenarios could we achieve this?
- What are the difficulties and trade-offs of these scenarios?
- Key sticking points going forwards – what needs to happen now?
