Rangelands Carbon Conference
31 August 2015
Landholders who are interested in learning more about the potential opportunities for carbon farming are encouraged to register now for the Rangelands Carbon Conference.
The conference, which is being held in Cobar on 28–29 October, will feature up-to-date and unbiased information about the Emissions Reduction Fund, land sector projects and new carbon farming methods.
It will also include an expo featuring exhibitors showcasing their services and advice about carbon farming.
The conference is supported by Local Land Services (LLS) Western Region through funding from the Australian Government.
Fiona Harris, Team Leader Strategic Land Services (Climate Change), from LLS Western Region said anyone who is interested in hearing about how they can engage with the carbon market should not miss out on this opportunity.
"With the recent announcement of Australia's Emissions Reduction Target for 2030 there is significant interest in carbon abatement opportunities and land sector projects featured strongly in the first Emisions Reduction Fund auction in April," Ms Harris said.
"There will be presentations from experts in the government and scientific sectors, covering all aspects of carbon farming methods, the auction process and long term considerations for landholders.
"Delegates will also get to hear firsthand from landholders who are already involved in carbon farming about their experiences with this emerging economy."
Registration is free and includes entry to the expo. Tickets for the conference dinner on 28 October are $53 per person.
