Costs and Losses of Wildfires in California
CCST has received funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (Moore Foundation) to produce a peer-reviewed report on the costs and losses of wildfires in California. The report will identify key questions of interest to decision makers and will conduct a literature review of existing datasets and studies that enumerate costs of wildfire management and wildfire-related losses in the state. Questions likely to be addressed in this study include, but are not limited to:
- What are the impacts of wildfires California?
- What are the existing databases tracking costs or losses of wildfires?
- What are the studies analyzing the costs and losses of wildfire?
- What are the key questions of interest to stakeholders to better inform policy decisions related to wildfires?
The final scope of the study is currently under development. CCST is seeking nominations of individuals with relevant expertise to serve in various roles in support of this study, including steering committee members, authors, report monitors, and peer reviewers. Please reach out to Brie Lindsey if you know of an expert or dataset that would be relevant
