This is the UK country report under DDPP, setting out some of the domestic opportunities and challenges in ensuring deep decarbonisation, and the role the UK can play in helping lead efforts to combat climate change internationally. The UK has been a leader in legislating long-term climate mitigation targets and crucially setting a binding institutional and reporting framework to ensure that a series of 5-year carbon budgets are adhered to. In summary, this report seeks to demonstrate, alongside other countries, that a 2°C target could be achievable, and still remains an important political goal to aim for at the coming climate talks in Paris.
