Audio feature: will coronavirus reduce food’s carbon footprint?

Emissions are likely to rise in the short term — but there is also a chance to build a more resilient food system

In the second audio feature for the FT’s sustainable food and agriculture special report, Dave Reay, author of Climate-Smart Food, talks to science and environment reporter Anna Gross. While coronavirus has hit the global food system hard, it also offers an opportunity for a long-term reset — including curbing agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. How might that come about? And what can governments and consumers do to make sure it does?
