Two weeks until the Rangelands Carbon Conference – register today!

Time is running out for people with an interest in Australia's growing carbon economy to register for the Rangelands Carbon Conference.

The conference, which is being held on 28-29 October in Cobar, has been organised by Local Land Services Western Region through funding from the Australian Government.

Russell Grant, Acting General Manager of Local Land Services Western Region, is one of the speakers at the conference.

"We want to provide land holders in the Western region with up-to-date and unbiased information about all aspects of the carbon economy," Mr Grant said.

"There will be presentations on how the Emissions Reduction Fund operates, the scientific basis of carbon production and storage, as well as land holders' experiences with implementing carbon projects.

 "Anyone who is thinking about getting involved in carbon farming should not miss this unique opportunity."

Local Land Services Western Region is also currently consulting with the public on its Draft Western Local Strategic Plan 2015-2020, which includes a strategy and actions to help land holders adapt to climate change.

"We want the public to tell us what they think about our strategy to adapt to climate change, and the actions that relate to it, and whether it meets their needs," Mr Grant said.

"We will use this feedback to help finalise our strategic plan and develop projects and programs that will be implemented over the next five years."
