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.
