Identify opportunities to grow the environmental services industry
The term environmental services can be used to describe numerous types of goods and services that rely on, interact with, and utilise the natural environment. An exact definition that accurately captures the scope of potential environmental services is challenging given its relativity to the needs and resources of a local economy, the potential breadth and boundaries, and possible overlaps with other industries.
In terms of the growth of the environmental services industry in the Northern Territory, and the implementation of this action, initiatives should focus more on empowering land managers and Indigenous organisations to establish and provide goods and services that will facilitate biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions offsets and emissions abatement, and increased climate change resilience across the Territory’s land and sea scapes.
