Land & Agriculture

The Land and Agriculture Working Group convenes representatives from across Australia's farming and land steward community including crop and livestock producers, foresters, sellers, land stewards and conservationists, catchment bodies, blue and green carbon farmers, and other practitioners and investors working in the natural capital space.

What we’re really talking about is a deep cultural change in the way we practice agriculture, and that takes time," Louise Edmonds.

In November 2020 the group hosted a webinar series to raise awareness and foster greater collaboration to identify and enable greater uptake of natural capital solutions across Australia. View the recordings of each session below.
