Economics

This research uses evidence-based knowledge to find the economic costs and benefits of bushfires. It also provides a basis for better understanding between fire modeling groups, science, economics and policy groups.

Questions

  • What are appropriate economic methods for understanding bushfire costs and benefits across a range of values?
  • What are key examples of economic costs and benefits (from whose point of view) associated with major bushfire events in Australia?
  • What are key examples of the preliminary projected economic costs and benefits associated with future bushfires in Australia, based on future scenarios developed by this project?
