Since it began in 2006, the West Arnhem Land Fire Abatement (WALFA) project has been an extraordinary success and is the landscape scale model on which the approved savanna burning methodology is based. Aboriginal fire managers and their partners in West Arnhem Land have successfully reinstated customary burning practices producing significant social, cultural, environmental and economic benefits for Indigenous landowners.
ALFA (NT) Limited, is a not-for-profit company owned exclusively by Aboriginal people with custodial responsibility for those parts of Arnhem Land under active bushfire management. Today, nine Aboriginal ranger groups operate five ALFA fire projects, delivering sophisticated fire management over a contiguous and culturally and environmentally significant area of over 80,000 km2 - an area much larger than the size of Tasmania. The purchase of ALFA generated ACCUs supports Aboriginal people in returning to, remaining on and managing their country, the protection of biodiversity, the preservation and transfer of knowledge, the maintenance of Aboriginal languages and the wellbeing of traditional custodians. ACCUs are eligible carbon offsets under NCOS.
The India Wind Project is located in Theni District, Tamil Nadu, India.
The project harnesses wind energy to generate and supply electricity to the grid. The Project displaces non-renewable fossil fuel based electricity that would have otherwise been generated by the operation and expansion of the fossil fuel based power plants in the grid.
The project is accredited under the Clean Development Mechanism. The offsets are called Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) and are eligible carbon offsets under NCOS.
