The 5Rs compared to damage and loss

Illustration of costs associated with wildfire management – the 5Rs – Review and analysis, Risk reduction, Readiness, Response, and Recovery. The estimate of current expenditures across the 5Rs (blue) comes from U.S. data (Thomas et al. 2015) but is considered likely to closely represent spending in developed states. Currently, there is very little spending on review and analysis (critical in determining the effectiveness of investment), a disproportionate amount on response, and very little on recovery. The suggested expenditures (green) represent a preliminary attempt to rebalance investments in a way that could reduce damage and loss (red), which currently greatly exceeds all spending on the 5Rs.
