Background Paper: Land management – hazard reduction: a literature review

Source(s):  The Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements

The effectiveness and benefits of different vegetation-related hazard reduction activities remain the subject of considerable debate amongst fire management authorities, fire scientists, ecologists, and the broader community.

This literature review discusses prescribed burning, which has received the most attention in the scientific literature, as well as the use of mechanical fuel load reduction and livestock grazing as fuel management techniques.

The views and statements in the paper are drawn from publicly available literature and do not necessarily represent the views of the Royal Commission.
