Horizon Debate: How will UK farming have to change in a net zero emissions economy?
Play • 31 min

CAP reform, the 25 year environment plan and Brexit will all combine to reshape future UK farming and land use, but the necessary contribution of land use to meeting more stringent carbon targets, and possibly even reaching a net zero emissions economy, has not yet been acknowledged by politicians.

This debate discusses the tensions between meeting these challenges and the different visions for the future of rural communities and landscapes.
