Co-benefits of carbon farming
These are called co-benefits and could, for example, have cultural heritage management benefits for an Indigenous land management organisation.
Recently, nine Rangers from Melsonby and Rinyirru Ranger groups attended a co-benefits workshop in Cooktown, to document and explore ways to verify how a savanna-burning carbon farming project could provide cultural co-benefits.
The workshop was about looking at new ways to assist groups to document and verify potential co-benefits using the Healthy Country Planning (HCP) Framework, which ensures culture, people and their knowledge are central to the process.
