The Clean Energy Regulator is interested in understanding how to make it easier for landholders and land managers, including farmers and traditional owners, to participate in the Australian Government's Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).
The ERF is a voluntary scheme that provides incentives for a range of organisations and individuals to adopt new practices and technologies to reduce their emissions or store carbon.
Technical rules for project eligibility and the claiming of benefits can be difficult to navigate and understand. We want to better understand and address barriers to participation in the ERF for landholders and land managers, including learning more about the farmer and traditional owner perspective.
The Clean Energy Regulator is exploring what tools and supports could best help landholders and land managers to participate in the ERF. We are looking at the benefits that online education and support tools can deliver for the ERF. This work will leverage the technology uplift currently being delivered by the Clean Energy Regulator to introduce a new portal, enhanced GIS capability and a more streamlined ERF registration and crediting process.
We are undertaking user research with landholders and land managers, including farmers and traditional owners, and the carbon and agriculture sectors to inform new ways to make it easier for people to access and participate in the ERF and create more benefits for landholders and land managers, service providers in the carbon and agriculture sectors, and the environment.
If you work in the carbon or agriculture industry, are a landholder or land manager (including farmers and traditional owners), or are currently participating in the ERF, we would like to hear from you about:
The results of this user research will support the next stage in this work to co-design, with key stakeholder groups, a suite of ERF online education and support tools. This stage is schedule to commence in November 2022.
Implement suite of online education and support tools to support landholders and land managers to participate in the ERF.
