LGAQ and DES sign MoU - Land Restoration Fund

Monday, 16 September 2019

Last week the LGAQ signed a MoU with the Department of Environment and Science to outline a framework for collaboration for the design and implementation of carbon projects which deliver co-benefits for the remote, rural and regional communities and landscapes of Queensland via the Land Restoration Fund.

The Queensland Government’s $500 million Land Restoration Fund aims to expand carbon farming in the state by supporting land sector projects that deliver clear environmental and economic co-benefits. Local governments in Queensland invest heavily in the delivery of natural asset protection for their communities and are ideally placed to implement a range of activities that sequester carbon while delivering benefits to biodiversity and ecosystem function in urban and peri-urban environments.

Beyond the signing of the MoU, the LGAQ will work with the Department of Environment and Science to identify opportunities for collaboration.
