Abstract

[Extract] Paying farmers for environmental services is a novel concept in the vast landscapes of northern Australia. These landscapes remain sparingly used and the tropical savannas vegetation has been largely retained (Greiner et al. 2009a). But degradation is occurring, and pressures for agricultural development and intensification are mounting. The opportunity still exists to prevent the scale of environmental decline and species extinctions that has been experienced in other parts of Australia. Could agri-environment schemes be an effective policy instrument to safeguard northern Australia's biodiversity, and, if so, what should an effective agri-environment scheme look like?
