THE CARBON FARMING INITIATIVE — WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?

posted 12 Apr 2011, 02:53 by Taiss Q

The EDO is holding a special seminar in Bendigo on Wednesday 20 April 2011, 5.30pm.

The Federal Government is currently introducing the Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) — a voluntary carbon offset scheme for the agriculture, land use and forestry sectors.  If you own or manage land or livestock, this scheme is meant to offer you the chance to reduce carbon, improve biodiversity and make money all at the same time. But will it? If not, what can you do about it?  

This seminar is ideal both for those who could participate in the scheme, and for those wanting to have input into making the CFI effective and successful.

Speakers:

  • Eliza Murray — Special Advisor, Carbon Farming Initiative, Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency
  • M. Corey Watts — Regional Projects Manager, The Climate Institute
  • Genevieve Ackland — Carbon Development Officer, Greening Australia
