Mitigation in the land sector is a win-win for land managers. A number of mitigation actions inform farm management practices, improve productivity and increase the sector’s resilience to a changing climate.
In relation to climate change mitigation:
- The department is supporting land managers to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund while assisting Australia in achieving its long term emissions reduction targets.
- The Carbon Farming Futures program is helping land managers benefit from carbon farming by supporting research, on-farm trials and extension to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and maintain productivity under a changing climate. Outcomes of this program will unlock new opportunities for land managers to participate in Emissions Reduction Fund.
