Analytic report on Human Induced Regeneration method

The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) commissioned analytical work to examine several concerns raised about the Emissions Reduction Fund’s Human Induced Regeneration (HIR) method (Human-induced regeneration of a permanent even-aged native forest methodology determination). The ERAC found that the evidence from robust analysis does not support these concerns. ERAC commissioned work by agricultural statisticians (Dr Stephen Beare and Prof Ray Chambers). Their report found strong statistical evidence that HIR projects resulted in increases in regeneration of vegetation in NSW and Queensland, independent of the impact of rainfall. In other words, the report found the portfolio of HIR projects to be additional. The Beare/Chambers report was peer reviewed by Prof Christopher Triggs, who found the choice of modelling methods to be appropriate throughout and said “we can have confidence in the robustness of the conclusions of the analysis in this report”.
