Carbon Fundamentals and Pathways




The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) and Northern Tablelands Local Land Services (NT LLS) will be teaming up to discuss what’s involved in Carbon Farming and Natural Capital fundamentals.


Clare Edwards, Development Officer (Carbon), Low Emissions Agriculture Group - Climate Branch (NSW Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, DPIRD). Clare Edwards is a Development Officer (Carbon) with DPIRD's On-Farm Carbon Advice Team. Clare has extensive knowledge in soils, pasture and grazing management has worked for both LLS and DPI over the years in the Northern and Central tablelands and slopes of NSW.

Rachel Lawrence, Natural Capital Advisor (Northern Tablelands Local Land Services, NT LLS). Rachel is the LLS Natural Capital Advisor for our Northern Tablelands region under LLS’s new state-wide Natural Capital program. Rachel has a range of experience in supporting landholders to protect and improve their farm environment for production as well as conservation outcomes. She has worked with Landcare on water catchment issues, in supporting integrated pest management in cropping systems and more recently in the development of natural capital accounting methods relevant to farm businesses.

This workshop will outline carbon farming fundamentals (carbon and emissions) as well as provide an introduction to natural capital, in order to help you understand links between natural capital and carbon farming and where they are more independent. The fundamentals of natural capital and carbon farming will help you navigate both challenges and opportunities in a more empowered way.

The new Local Land Services state-wide Natural Capital program will officially be launched in late July. This workshop will help you to understand what is meant by natural capital and where it is and isn't linked to carbon farming outcomes. The talk will cover why it is important to start understanding it, how it might relate to your own situation and how you might be able to benefit from opportunities relating to natural capital.

"We want to give farmers a clear view of where we are heading with carbon farming and their on-farm emissions and what it may mean for their farming enterprises."
