Replay the Paying the Price online forum

The Paying the Price online forum, part of the Research to Drive Change series, is now available for replay. Researchers Professor Steve Dovers (Australian National University) and Professor David Pannell (University of Western Australia) joined lead end user and ACT Chief Fire Officer Andrew Stark in explaining how economic evaluation can inform bushfire risk management strategies. This included case studies in New Zealand’s Central Otago region and South Australia’s Mount Lofty Ranges, which provided insights into the question of which fire-prevention strategies provide the best value for money. The forum was hosted by former ABC TV Catalyst reporter Tanya Ha. 

A short video kicked off the forum, providing a high level overview of the study. Replay the full forum, watch the video and download Fire Notes and reports from this project here.
