Field with clouds

The State Government announced today that it will support carbon farming on pastoral lease land in Western Australia (WA). As readers of our blog will know Glen McLeod Legal hosted on 27 November 2019 a seminar titled  ‘The Potential of Carbon Farming in Western Australia – Opportunities and Challenges’, in collaboration with Murdoch University and the Harry Butler Institute.

The State Government’s support for carbon farming on pastoral land is seen as a major step in unlocking WA’s carbon sequestration potential and according to the Government’s announcement is expected to be an element of the State’s Climate Policy, planned for release in 2020.
