Assessing the feasibility of a new biodiversity credit in the Wet Tropics

Market systems may be used to benefit biodiversity, for example if land managers were to earn income for their work to protect or restore forest. In this project, we worked with Terrain NRM and the Land Restoration Fund (Queensland Government) to develop understanding of what would be involved to deliver a Cassowary Credit scheme in the Wet Tropics of Australia. We examined technical aspects of crediting the biodiversity benefits of rainforest restoration, including accounting methods, eligibility requirements and co-benefits.
