Australian Savanna Fire Management

Fire management to prevent large wildfires late in the dry season

Project overview

  • Region: Asia

  • Project type: Forestry and landscapes

  • Standards:

Through the strategic and planned burning of linked networks of savanna areas in the high rainfall zone during the early dry season, this project reduces the risk of uncontrolled late dry season wild fires which can dominate the tropical north of Australia and cover thousands of hectares. Savannah burning is a cultural tradition amongst the Indigenous population of Cape York and has been used for many generations to manage the land. In addition, the project uses a grader to create mineral earth breaks as well as ground teams to reduce the spread of wildfires. This project is registered through the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) Standard developed by the Australian Government.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), the project delivers another sustainable development benefit:

  • Life on Land: By reducing the risk of uncontrolled late dry season wild fires, the project reduces the damage to ecosystems and the biodiversity contained within the savanna areas.

Greenhouse gases emitted from savannah fires contribute 3% of Australia’s total emissions.
