She will review existing 1.5 °C emission pathways, then develop and analyse alternative low-carbon visions for food and diet; focussing initially on the UK but with a broader remit for Brazil, Sweden and China. She will also help to develop a new framework to identify and assess the lifestyle implications and assumptions within low-carbon scenarios across the UK and the three other countries.
