About the Project

The West Arnhem Land Fire Abatement Stage 2 (WALFA2) Project uses strategic fire management activities across the project area to reduce the fire-generated emissions of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O). The west and central Arnhem Land region has had a recent history of severe late dry season wildfire covering many thousands of square kilometers. This project applies strategic early dry season burning activities to reduce the total area that is burnt each year and to shift the seasonality of burning from Late Dry Season (LDS) to Early Dry Season (EDS). The project activity is carried out by three Indigenous ranger groups: the Djelk Rangers (Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation) based at Maningrida, the Mimal Rangers (Mimal Land Management Aboriginal Corporation) based in Bulman and the Arafura Swamp Rangers (Arafura Swamp Rangers Aboriginal Corporation) who operate out of Ramingining

Project Co-Benefits

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. The company was created by Landowners and the Indigenous ranger groups operating the fire projects in Arnhem Land to support Indigenous land management with funding generated through the sale of Australian Carbon Credit Units. 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.
