Potential for Indigenous communities to tackle climate change

Date posted: 3 June 2014

A new study, the Carbon farming initiative, which explores ways to tackle climate change, has emphasised the importance of replanting native forests and woodlands vegetation on Indigenous lands, notably southern and eastern Australia.

The replanting would assist in storing significant amounts of carbon, as well as provide another source of income for Indigenous communities, opportunities to work on country, improve health, and enhance management of traditional lands.

The work builds on research led by Dr Cathy Robinson from the CSIRO, and is joined by the National Environmental Research Program's Environmental Decisions Hub (NERP EDH).
