NRM Regions Queensland has partnered with the Queensland Government to deliver a series of workshops across Queensland to help landholders apply for the Queensland Government’s Land Restoration Fund (the Fund). The 2020 Investment Round of the Fund will invest $100 million in projects that deliver carbon farming with co-benefits.
At the workshops, specialists from government, industry and the carbon farming sector (CSIROs LOOC-C carbon calculator tool, Farm Map 4D, QRIDA, Carbon Market Institute, your local NRM staff and Carbon Project Developers) will explain the application process and provide information on the first investment round so attendees can start putting together applications for carbon farming projects in Queensland.
Guest speakers and presenters will be available to speak one-on-one to attendees after each workshop.
