Description:

The Carbon Farming Skills initiative was designed to ensure that landholders had access to credible, high quality advice and carbon services. This measure funded:

  • development of a new nationally accredited qualification for carbon service providers;
  • accreditation of carbon brokers and aggregators operating in the Carbon Farming Initiative; and
  • information workshops for farm extension officers, catchment authorities and rural service providers about carbon farming.

The Carbon Farming Skills Program was ended as part of the repeal of the Clean Energy Act 2011.  All parts of the Carbon Farming Initiative will roll into the Emissions Reduction Fund.
