NT Climate Change Policy

VMP Admin's picture

The Territory Government's $34 million Northern Territory Climate Change Policy, is a comprehensive action plan to combat climate change.

Developed over a two year period, with significant input from Territorians, particularly business and industry, as well as environment and community groups, the policy will ensure the Territory economy is strategically placed as a green resource base into the future.

The five headline actions in the policy are:

  1. By 2018, the Territory Government will be carbon neutral.
     
  2. By 2020, at least four million tonnes of carbon per year will be removed from the atmosphere through better land management. Working with business, landholders and the community the Territory can become a major player in the emerging carbon economy, assisted by the establishment of new Carbon Fund arrangements.
     
  3. The Territory will be a low land-clearing jurisdiction, protecting the ‘carbon bank’ in our landscape. The rate of clearing will be contained. The government will introduce native vegetation legislation to protect Territory vegetation.
     
  4. By 2020, the Territory will be a world leading generator of renewable and low emissions power in remote communities.
     
  5. The Territory will be at the forefront of efforts to save the best of our priceless coastal wetlands, at risk from rising sea levels – through specific interventions aimed to reduce salt water intrusion, protect fishing and save biodiversity.
