Round 1 of the Carbon Farming and Land Restoration Program (CF-LRP) featured two streams:
The sharing of project data and information from successful projects in both streams will contribute to a more climate-resilient farming industry.
Projects funded through the CF-LRP will implement activities that also deliver additional, positive outcomes, referred to as ‘co-benefits’. These co-benefits can increase the perceived and actual value of carbon sequestration activities. The CF-LRP priority co-benefits are:
- Biodiversity and conservation
- Agricultural productivity
- Salinity mitigation
- Soil health
- Aboriginal economic and cultural opportunities
The Priority Investment Co-benefits Standard outlines how the proponent should determine which co-benefits their project will deliver, and how these co-benefits will be measured, monitored and reported on at the agreed milestones.
CF-LRP Co-benefits Information Portal
The Co-benefits Information Portal is an interactive GIS mapping tool developed to identify potential co-benefits. You should use the portal in conjunction with other information and on-ground evidence to identify and validate the project's co-benefits. A Portal User Guide is provided.
To be eligible, projects must:
- be located in the South West Land Division;
- undertake carbon sequestration activities;
- deliver one or more of the CF-LRP priority co-benefits; and
- demonstrate that funded activities are new (i.e. not yet commenced) and additional (i.e. would not have occurred without State Government financial support).
Proponents are required to provide a minimum 30% cash co-contribution and submit ongoing project and co-benefit monitoring and evaluation reports at relevant milestones.
