Bushfires NT, CRCSI and Spatial Vision develop fire management methodology

Bushfires NT, Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information and Spatial Vision: Development of a web-based tool to simplify use of the existing savanna fire management methodology

The Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) allows farmers and other land managers to earn carbon credits by storing carbon or reducing greenhouse gas emissions on the land. Participants can earn carbon credits by setting up a project under an approved CFI methodology, which sets out the ground rules for the activity.

The current approved savanna burning methodology, requires a series of complicated, but appropriate, methods for estimating greenhouse gas emissions. The complexity and level of professional background required to undertake the calculations, as they are currently presented in the methodology, limit the uptake of the methodology.

The vast majority of the calculations required in the savanna fire management methodology can be automated into a simple to use web based tool.
