AUSTRALIAN CARBON FARMING
Controlled fire management not only reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions but it provides added income to the northern parts of Australia.
Large uncontrolled wildfires can cause many problems for landholders and can be costly and damaging for stock and biodiversity. They also emit large amounts of GHG. Under the savannah burning method GHG emissions can be reduced by the purpose burning of land. With controlled savannah burning projects you reduce wildfire severity by reducing fuel loads with early dry season fire management. This approach can be very useful to indigenous land owners and other land managers in the northern areas of Australia.
In addition, burning early can generate and maintain biodiversity levels on your land it can also protect your stock and natural habitats.
Carbon credits for Savannah burning
If you're interested in generating additional sources of income for your land Climate Friendly can help. We will assess the viability of savannah burning for carbon credits. We will take you through the details of setting up projects from scoping to sales including fire management, whilst you control the burning program.
The extra revenue you receive can contribute towards many long term benefits including improvements in meaningful land management and creating employment opportunities for the local community.
