Current carbon prices do not stack up to much land use change, despite bundled ecosystem service co‐benefits
The economics case for significant land use change are likely to be geographically dispersed and only viable in relatively niche landscape positions in high establishment, high opportunity cost areas even when carbon payments are augmented with the value of co-benefits classified as providing direct and local benefits.

Potential for forest carbon plantings to offset greenhouse emissions in Australia: economics and constraints to implementation
The theoretical potential for carbon forests to off-set greenhouse gas emissions may be high but the achievable rate is influenced by a range of economic and social factors. Economic returns (net
Evaluating the potential financial contributions of carbon farming to grazing enterprises in Western NSW
This article reports on modelling of the farm-level financial implications of changing land use from rangelands grazing to ‘carbon farming’ (vegetation-based carbon sequestration) in north-western

Food-carbon trade-offs between agriculture and reforestation land uses under alternate market-based policies
Understanding the effects of payments on the adoption of reforestation in agricultural areas and the associated food-carbon trade-offs is necessary to inform climate change policy. Economic viability
The effects of uncertainty under a cap-and-trade policy on afforestation in the United States
To combat climate change, cap-and-trade policies have been proposed and implemented in countries around the world. The stochastic carbon price that results from a cap-and-trade policy makes
Carbon Payments and Low‐Cost Conservation
Overall, less carbon is sequestered by mixed native tree and shrub plantings in southern Australia, however, areas of high priority for conservation and restoration may be restored relatively cheaply in the presence of a carbon market.
Climate Change Reduces the Mitigation Obtainable from Sequestration in an Australian Farming System
Agricultural research on climate change generally follows two themes: (i) impact and adaptation or (ii) mitigation and emissions. Despite both being simultaneously relevant to future agricultural
Carbon Offsets as Ecological Restorations
The explosive growth of carbon markets is creating unprecedented opportunities for landscape‐scale restoration worldwide. Most mandatory and voluntary greenhouse gas reduction programs allow use of
