Presenters: Yeon-Su Kim (Northern Arizona University) and Diane Vosick (Ecological Restoration Institute)
What are the economic values of landscape-level ecological restoration and hazardous fuel treatments? The Ecological Restoration Institute at Northern Arizona University (ERI) assembled a team of wildland fire economists to conduct a rapid evidence-based assessment, as well as to design a timely and efficient way to answer the emerging questions. In this Webinar, we will present some of our preliminary findings and innovations, not just in addressing the sharp increase in fire suppression costs and damages, but more importantly in enhancing natural resource and ecosystem service values.
