Carbon Farming Awareness

The Carbon Farming Awareness Project helps to increase land managers’ understanding and knowledge of carbon farming opportunities in Western Australia.

As the world implements schemes to mitigate the effects of climate change there are opportunities available for landholders in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR).

NACC is working to improve the knowledge and opportunities around carbon farming for our local landholders.

The Department of Agriculture and Food WA developed a series of Factsheets to help explain the number of areas that Carbon Farming covers.

The Carbon Farming Awareness project came to a close at the end of June 2016. To read more about the outcomes of this project, take a look at this report.

The Carbon Farming Awareness Project is a collaborative project between the Department of Agriculture and Food WA and the regional NRM Groups. It is funded by Royalties for Regions.
