Social care is a national problem needing a national solution
Responding to Age UK’s calculation that council tax would need to leap by 10% on average next year if social care is to even “stand still”, UNISON senior national officer for social care Gavin Edwards said: “These figures are a clear indication why social care needs immediate help from central government. Hiking council tax bills to plug the care-funding black hole is unworkable and deeply unfair. “Not only would ​this deepen existing inequalities, with those from wealthier postcodes having bigger funding pots, but it could also push many low earners below the poverty line. &l...

How Transforming Food Systems Could Unlock a $12 Trillion Global Windfall
By Agnes KalibataNEW YORK, Sep 23 2021 (IPS) With the world still counting the social and economic costs of the Covid-19 pandemic, amid a fresh “code red” on the climate crisis, food may not seem like the most pressing threat to humanity. Yet transforming entire food systems around the world offers the solution to the $12 trillion challenge many have not yet realised we are facing. The existential threats that appear to be looming on the horizon are in fact already silently costing the world in poor health, environmental losses and stifled economic growth, a toll that could reach $16 trillion by 2050.
