Decarbonising land use

Policy solutions to cut emissions from agriculture and land use
Decarbonising land use
Reducing emissions from agriculture and other land uses will be vital for the UK to meet its decarbonisation commitments. Yet, although there are clear opportunities to cut emissions, this is one area of climate action that has so far been overlooked.
Brexit is likely to bring significant disruption to the sector, but the changes coming are a chance to put the spotlight on the climate impacts and decarbonisation opportunities of agriculture and other land uses and rethink the policy framework to mitigate them.
With input from an expert steering group, chaired by Sir Graham Wynne, we are exploring options for immediate policy action as well as longer term interventions to ensure that land use and agriculture play their full part in cutting emissions in the UK.
