Can I Participate?

The first step to conduct a Carbon Farming project is to review the Government approved rules that outline whether your farm or land can earn Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs).

These rules are called methods and they explain how to measure and calculate greenhouse gas emissions reductions from a range of different activities.

Methods set out the rules for undertaking activities under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) which earn ACCUs.

There are a variety of benefits other than earning carbon credits obtainable by conducting a Carbon Farming project which don’t require an applicable method.

Check out the resources available in the How Do I Participate section or see what other research and assistance is happening in your area in the Extension & Outreach section.

  • Emissions abatement through savanna fire management


    The objective of this method is to abate greenhouse gas emissions from fire largely through using fire during the early dry season. The intent is to reduce the proportion of the total area burnt by all fires that occurs in the late dry season.

    Under this method, abatement is estimated using models to account for the differences in emissions between vegetation fuel types, fire seasons, fuel loads as a function of time since the last fire, and regions receiving different amounts of average annual rainfall.

    This method covers two rainfall zones shown on the Savanna Fire Management Rainfall Zone spatial data layers:

    the high rainfall zone, is the area of land indicated as the high rainfall zone on the spatial data layer as published on the Department of the Environment website, and

    the low rainfall zone, is the area of land indicated as the low rainfall zone on the spatial data layer as published on the Department of the Environment website​.
