Draft plantation forestry method and carbon farming rule

The Australian Department of the Environment and Energy is calling for public comment on a draft amendment to the Plantation Forestry Method. The Method will apply to projects establishing one or more new plantation forests, or converting one or more short-rotation plantation forests to long‑rotation plantation forests. Part of the consultation proposes changes to the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Rule 2015.

This is part of the Department’s consultation over amendments to the Emissions Reduction Fund methods, including Savanna fire management.

Submissions are invited until Friday 30 December 2016. (However, the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee has indicated it may consider submissions received as late as Monday 9 January 2017.)
