Prime Minister Scott Morrison is preparing to take Australia’s emissions plan to Glasgow but also left a message for farmers.
There is a clear division between the Nationals and senior Liberals over what has been agreed to in the net zero by 2050 plan.
Regional voters and farmers through the Daily Telegraph Bush Summit were told by Mr Morrison rural areas would not be impacted.
“Our plan for net zero doesn’t force our farmers to do anything more than what you’re already doing and will be choosing to do in the future,” he said.
“We won’t be asking the states or territories to use their powers under our plan for 2050 to regulate the way you use your land.”
Mr Morrison said the government “wanted Australians to choose” how they used their land to get the “highest and best outcomes”.
