AFPA has had a long history of stakeholder engagement on the development of domestic climate policy schemes, as well as on international climate change negotiations and related policy measures. This submission builds on the earlier AFPA submissions to the Department of Environment on the development of the Emissions Reduction Fund including on the Terms of Reference and Green Paper, as well as a submission to the Australian Government on the 19th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and to the Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee on the Carbon Farming Initiative. AFPA refers the Climate Change Authority to comments made in a recent submission to the Department of Environment on the Exposure Draft of the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Amendment Bill 2014 (included as Appendix 1) for detail on AFPA’s key concerns around the existing CFI framework and the changes proposed in the Bill.
