Nationals plan to pay farmers to cut emissions in deal on net zero

Barnaby Joyce has returned to the Nationals leadership with David Littleproud as his deputy.

Farmers will gain a chance to be “repaid” for helping to cut greenhouse gas emissions in a proposal from the Nationals that opens the way for a deal on climate change under new leader Barnaby Joyce. Setting out the terms for a negotiation on an ambitious new climate target, Nationals deputy leader David Littleproud warned that farmers had carried the cost of previous targets and needed compensation for stronger action.
