Australia’s bushfires, environmental policy, and valuing Indigenous knowledge
IN FOCUS: AUSTRALIA’S BUSHFIRES
This Australian bushfire season has taken an unprecedented toll. With thousands of homes destroyed, more than six million hectares of land burnt, hundreds of millions of native animals lost, and dozens of fatalities, the Australian people are calling for policy action.
In the face of disaster, misinformation can move quickly, and solutions can be hard to come by. As part of bringing you relevant, fact-based, policy-focused debate on all important issues, Policy Forum is launching a special In Focus section: Australia’s Bushfires. Unpacking the causes and implications of the crisis, our authors will reflect on all that has happened and what policymakers must do next.
Readers, we encourage you to join the discussion, and we hope that it can provide some of the policy answers the country needs.
