Land Restoration Fund
The Land Restoration Fund aims to expand carbon farming in Queensland by supporting land-based projects that deliver clear environmental, social and economic co-benefits. Carbon farming refers to land management activities that avoid the release of greenhouse gases or increase the carbon stored in the land. Activities may include planting trees, protecting native forest by avoiding vegetation clearing and changing practices to increase soil carbon. Land Restoration Fund Pilot Projects currently being undertaken will trial activities and inform the development of the Land Restoration Fund. The focus is on the co-benefits of activities that reduce carbon and have beneficial outcomes for the environment, such as for biodiversity conservation or improving water quality.
