Carbon farming in Australia’s rangelands is now experiencing significant growth and market demand. This trend, combined with proposed changes to state government policies in how Western Australia uses its rangelands, has sparked renewed interest and momentum to develop commercial carbon sequestration activities in WA.
This is a chance to discover how the state’s leaseholders, land managers, investors and policy makers can unlock the economic potential of sequestering carbon in vegetation across WA’s Outback lands.
Join the country’s leading carbon experts to:
- explore the economic potential of carbon sequestration for WA and its land managers, and hear how other states have benefited from carbon sequestration;
- hear the latest carbon developments in carbon markets, laws and policies at a state, national and international level;
- learn about the potential to integrate carbon into existing rangelands businesses and the practical reality of on-ground management for carbon; and
- be part of developing a plan that addresses the obstacles to carbon sequestration in WA’s rangelands.
