The aim of this report is to begin the process of establishing a robust set of information to inform the debate on the most appropriate bushfire management policy in Australia. The scoping study provides the background for undertaking a full Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) of a policy of greater use of fuel burning in combination with the mechanical removal of trees and understorey biomass.
