Native Forest Restoration Portfolio, Australia

regenerating native forests which have been suppressed through agriculture such as grazing

Project overview

  • Region: Asia

  • Project type: Forestry and landscapes

  • Standards:

Based around the South West Darling Downs region of Queensland, the project is regenerating the native forests which have been suppressed through agriculture such as grazing. The project activities include using tree species local to the native area, managing the timing and extent of grazing, thinning for fire management, stopping or suppressing any mechanical clearing of natural regrowth. This project is registered through the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) Standard developed by the Australian Government.

A portion of the project area is on land over which the Budjiti aboriginal people have a native title interest. Through the project they have gained additional access to their traditional lands for cultural, heritage and bush tucker purposes. They also receive a share of the carbon sale revenues.

Sustainable Development Goals

In addition to delivering emissions reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the project delivers additional sustainable development benefits:

  • No Poverty: Approximately 23,000 households live within the project area and 75% of the carbon revenue is returned to them. The project is also working with local households on agricultural training to improve crop yields and formation of a cooperative to improve access to markets.
  • Clean Water: The project includes 21 km of riparian zones along the Paroo River which the regeneration of native vegetation will protect.
