Draft ERF method: Measurement of soil carbon sequestration in agricultural systems
The Department of the Environment and Energy is seeking feedback on the draft Measurement of soil carbon sequestration in agricultural systems method. The draft method provides an opportunity for landholders and businesses to earn Australian Carbon Credit Units by managing their land in a way that could lead to an increase in soil organic carbon. The draft method uses direct measurement to detect changes in soil carbon and a regression approach to attribute that change to human activity. The method provides for project proponents to be credited with this change, subject to discounts and buffers.
Submissions are invited until Monday, 2 October 2017.
