[WEBINAR] Australian Soil Carbon Offset Methods

26 June 2019 - Online

The science, the policy and the practice

The Integrative Research Group (IRG) of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases  (GRA) is glad to invite you to our Webinar Meeting "Australian Soil Carbon Offset Methods: the science, the policy and the practice". Presented by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, the Australian Government Department of Environment and Energy, and the Australian Government Clean Energy Regulator.

June 26, 2019, at 9:00 P.M (Canberra UTC+10).

Please register at: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_4j2jOeFVSACV150MXPNEJA

What is this webinar about?
The Australian Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) is a voluntary scheme that supports Australian businesses, farmers and land managers to take actions to reduce emissions and improve the environment. By running projects to reduce emissions and store carbon, businesses, land managers and others can earn Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs). These units can be sold to the Australian Government through a carbon abatement contract, or to other businesses seeking to offset their emissions. Over 770 projects have been registered under many eligible activities, including energy efficiency, waste management, revegetation, livestock management, savanna fire management and soil carbon sequestration.

Eligible emissions reduction activities are included in ‘methodology determinations’, or ‘methods’ for short. Methods are developed by the government in consultation with industry and technical experts. They set out the rules for estimating carbon abatement from different activities, including in the land sector. These methods ensure that carbon abatement is measurable, verifiable and additional to business as usual operations.

What will you learn?
Join Beverly Henry, Vyt Vilkaitis and Konrad Muller to hear about the soil carbon methods under Australia’s ERF - the development of the underpinning science, the policy framework and the practicalities of the methods.
Beverley, Vyt and Konrad will discuss all this, in the context of the two legislated methods currently approved for soil carbon offsets:

  • Estimating sequestration of carbon in soil using default values method (model-based soil carbon)
  • Measurement of soil carbon sequestration in agricultural systems method
