Local Solutions for People and Planet

Positive and sustainable futures

Terrain NRM is an independent, not for profit community-based environmental management organisation. We think innovatively and act collaboratively, combining the latest science with local knowledge to develop sustainable solutions to increase the resilience of the rainforests, reefs and landscapes of Australia’s Wet Tropics region.

Cassowary Credits Market

Eco-system services markets are a way to attract new investment into environmental projects. They provide landholders with an income for undertaking work for the public good. Terrain NRM is exploring the concept of a 'Cassowary Credit' scheme, similar to carbon or reef credits, that would pay landholders to restore rainforest habitat. A Cassowary Credit would be a quantified and certified ‘biodiversity unit’ that could be openly traded. And landholders could combine this with a carbon credit to increase the payments from their habitat restoration.

Reef Credits – similar to carbon credits – is Australia’s first market-based system providing ecosystem service payments in exchange for making changes to reduce nutrient, pesticide and sediment run-off to the Great Barrier Reef. It also offers a measurable, verifiable and audited system that guarantees a result for investors. The scheme was developed via a unique partnership between Terrain NRM and GreenCollar, a leading environmental markets developer.
