Practical income and long-term funding with carbon farming
Under a Conservation Bank Agreement, we pay farmers, landowners, and conservation organizations per hectare per year for a 30-year contract, and we assess how the habitat banks function in accordance with the aims of a Biodiversity Management Plan.
The method permits long-term and large-scale habitat protection where biodiversity is a real concern in the planning process, and biodiversity conservation is more efficient by providing adequate funding of gain for nature, with economic disincentives for habitat destruction. They also give landowners a practical income and long-term funding without affecting their land title.
