ALFA NT was created by Aboriginal landowners to support their engagement in the carbon industry
In the remote tropical savannas of northern Australia’s Arnhem Land, Aboriginal traditional owners and rangers use customary knowledge and modern tools to accomplish highly sophisticated fire management.
The work is resourced through their engagement with the carbon market and a savanna burning methodology that calculates a reduction in wildfire emissions through controlled, early season burning.
ALFA (NT) Limited – Arnhem Land Fire Abatement – is an organisation created by Aboriginal landowners to support their engagement in the carbon industry.
An entirely Aboriginal-owned and not-for-profit carbon farming business, ALFA support traditional owners to manage five fire projects across an area of more than 80,000 square kilometres, encompassing vast savanna regions, rugged sandstone escarpments, monsoon rainforest, intact river ecosystems, floodplains, and remote coastal areas.
