The Awareness Raising of Carbon Farming Issues project is now completed.
It was a partnership project with all the NRM Regions in WA and the Department of Agriculture and Food WA. The project was funded through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program.
Carbon farming is the process of managing soil, vegetation, water and animals to increase carbon storage and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a farmer or land manager, you can store carbon (sequester) through management practices such as planting trees or increasing soil carbon, or avoid emissions through the use of bio-fuels or the reduction of methane produced by animals.
Carbon farming activities provide farmers and land managers with the potential to benefit financially from reducing carbon pollution while at the same time improving resource management.
As part of this awareness raising project, DAFWA produced a number of Fact Sheets by analysing and capturing current and emerging information on carbon farming related policy, legislation and science, to identify carbon farming opportunities and risks. These fact sheets are grouped below by subject matter.
The Royalties for Regions Carbon Farming Awareness project also put together a showcase document/magazine of the project (see the ‘Latest Publications’ link below).
