The Australian Government is developing a net zero plan which will outline how transitioning to a net-zero economy can be achieved.
Six sectoral plans will support this work, including one for agriculture and the land sector.
Australia’s agriculture and land sectors are already feeling the effects of climate change.
The Australian Government has signed up to the Paris Agreement and committed to emission reduction goals including reaching net zero by 2050.
Meeting climate goals will help position Australia’s export-oriented agriculture sector to take advantage of shifts in markets and better position the sector to meet expectations from supply chains and the finance sector from the global transition towards lower emissions.
To develop the right plan, and to better understand what is possible for the agriculture and land sectors in terms of emissions reductions and what technologies and practices we need to invest in to help the sector to transition, feedback is being sought.
