introduction
Introduction
  • Survey limited to
    • Papers in English
    • Mostly journal published (non-grey) literature
  • Restricted to accounting for costs and benefits in relation to forest fires
  • Interested in seeing how, how much and where
fire phases typology
Fire phases typology
  • Prevention
  • Wildfire
  • Restoration
restoration
Restoration
  • Immediate costs
    • e.g. mulching, erosion barriers, seeding
  • Prolonged costs
    • e.g. reforestation, infrastructure reconstruction, research projects
wildfire
Wildfire
  • Suppression costs
  • Damage costs
wildfire suppression
Wildfire, suppression
  • Suppression costs
    • personal, equipment, logistic costs, etc.
wildfire damages
Wildfire, damages
  • Market goods damage accounting
    • timber, property losses, economic activity losses, etc.
wildfire damages11
Wildfire, damages
  • Non-market goods damage accounting
    • biodiversity, health effects, habitats, etc.
prevention measures
Prevention measures

Main types of prevention measures

  • Prescribed burning
  • Mechanical treatments
  • Chemical treatments
prevention measures14
Prevention measures

Main costs

  • Implementation costs
  • Market goods damage accounting
  • Non-market goods damage accounting
prevention measures15
Prevention measures
  • Cost comparison
    • analyzing costs
    • different types of prevention measures
prevention measures17
Prevention measures
  • Benefit comparison
    • with and without prevention measures

Prescribed burning

(certainty)

Wildfire

(uncertainty)

prevention measures19
Prevention measures
  • Cost benefit analysis of prescribed burning
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Conclusions are drawn from a survey with some limitations (mainly from papers published in English)
  • Little attention to the economics of forest fires when compared to other disciplines
conclusions21
Conclusions
  • For restoration
    • very few papers
    • market price based
  • For wildfire
    • a great deal of dispersion on values
    • market price approaches still dominate
  • For prevention
    • some consensus on prescribed burning as best measure
    • Contingent valuation dominated
conclusions22
Conclusions
  • Geographically, USA dominance in the studies
  • Not much in Mediterranean forests (except for California)
  • Studies tend to be driven
    • by compensation (wildfire) or
    • by policy (wildfire and prevention)
