Description

A diversity of partners and interests, federal to private, came together to identify current challenges and research in the wildland fire and air quality impacts realm. Meeting management needs and the opportunity to learn from one another’s expert perspectives were primary meeting objectives. After reviewing an extensive listing of joint challenges, the group determined five broad priority areas and developed actions to address the gaps and needs under each of the priority areas. Further, the top five themes and proposed shorter-term activities have been developed more extensively to give WFLC members and other partners an opportunity to begin moving the issues forward.
