Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot in the Riverina

The Australian Government is running the Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot in our region. The Pilot is a key part of the Australian Government’s $66.1 million Agriculture Biodiversity Stewardship Package and will reward farmers for the stewardship of their land, storing carbon and improving Australia’s biodiversity.

Applications for round 2 are now. Find out more and apply.

Guidelines, planting protocols and other information on the Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot are available from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment website. It is strongly recommended that applicants seek independent professional advice about participation in this pilot, potentially including financial, legal, agronomy and carbon project specialists.

We are the local NRM partner helping the government to implement the pilot in our region, helping to ensure it works for our landholders.

Applications will open in December 2021 and close on 3 March 2022.

For more info visit the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment website.

At this stage we encourage you to read about the program and join our mailing list.
