A short video produced by the Northern Australia Hub of the National Environmental Research Program about the potential for weeds to threaten carbon offset programs. Researchers have identified gamba grass and other invasive weeds as a potential threat to landholder involvement in environmental offset programs such as the Carbon Farming Initiative.
This booklet, produced by the United Nations University in conjunction with NAILSMA, is a short guide to issues relating to climate change as well as the carbon market and the role Indigenous fire management can and does play.
Produced by the Kimberley Land Council, this short provides an overview of how carbon farming works under the Australian Government's Carbon Farming Initiative.
Produced by the Kimberley Land Council, this video explains the types of, and rules associated with, projects available to landholders in the Kimberley region of WA under the Carbon Farming Initiative. Carbon farming projects allow landowners to earn money for projects that cut down the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the air.
This video, prepared by the Kimberley Land Council, outlines the North Kimberley Fire Management Project currently running under the Carbon Farming Initiative. The video includes Dambimangari Traditional Owners and rangers talking about how the project runs, undertaking savanna burning on country to generate carbon credits from early dry season burning
This report describes research on the possible generation of greenhouse gas offsets derived from Indigenous land management. Land management practices can sequester carbon or change emissions regimes, and with access to markets, a change in carbon stocks or emissions may be sold as an offset. Biophysical, economic, and institutional conditions set limits to these possibilities. (Heckbert et al., 2008). The report can be downloaded from this site (PDF 2.61 MB)
This page discusses a project to identify the biophysical, economic and social opportunities for remote communities that relate to land management for greenhouse gas abatement, with a focus on fire management in tropical savannas. It contains an overview of the project and a link to publications from the project.
The CFI Savanna Burning Abatement Tool (SavBAT) automates some of the GIS operations and calculations required to estimate greenhouse gas abatement for a project or potential project under the methodology determination for Savanna Burning 1.1. SavBAT is available on the North Australian Fire Information Service website.
