Carbon Farming Initiative workshop series for agricultural advisors

The Department of Agriculture hosted 21 Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) workshops for agricultural advisors in regional centres around Australia during May and June 2012. These workshops provided advisors with an opportunity to learn about the CFI and to discuss the prospects and challenges of the scheme for their region. Through the discussion session, advisors identified what further information they and their clients would like to have about the CFI and the best mechanisms to receive the information. The evaluation of the workshops showed 89.7 per cent of attendees found the workshop useful.

Climate Change Research Program

The Climate Change Research Program (CCRP), a component of Australia’s Farming Future, ended on 30 June 2012. The program funded research projects and on farm demonstrations to help prepare Australia’s primary industries for climate change and build the resilience of our agricultural sector into the future. Research focused on reducing greenhouse emissions, improving soil management and climate change adaptation.

In 2011–12, a national program of information sessions on the outcomes of CCRP projects was delivered to industry advisors and primary producers as stand alone or partnered events.

The information sessions were tailored to the local region and, where possible, held on–farm or at a research demonstration site. The information sessions included information such as:

  • Regional, sectorally relevant technologies, farming systems and tools developed through the CCRP research
  • Current best practice and developing mitigation and adaptation options.
