Together with the Carbon + Biodiversity Pilot the Enhancing Remnant Vegetation Pilot is trialling ways to pay landholders for improving biodiversity on their properties.
This pilot aims to help develop a biodiversity market to encourage environmental improvement on private land. The pilot looks at managing native vegetation using locally adapted management protocols developed by the Australian National University in consultation with Natural Resource Management (NRM) organisations.
Successful landholders receive payments to manage and improve existing remnant native vegetation on their property.
The pilot is part of the wider Agriculture Biodiversity Stewardship Package.
The first round of the Enhancing Remnant Vegetation Pilot is being trialled in 6 NRM regions:
- Burnett-Mary in Queensland
- Central West in New South Wales
- North Central in Victoria
- NRM North in Tasmania
- Eyre Peninsula in South Australia
- South West in Western Australia.
