Webinar - Designing Suitable Pathways to Wildfire Adaptation in and Around Communities: One Size Does Not Fit All

Description

Part of the Co-Management of Fire Risk Transmission (CoMFRT) webinar series

Presenters: Travis Paveglio and Catrin Edgeley

The community pathways team uses frameworks and approaches they developed during decades of studying how communities adapt differently to wildfire. They use their systematic approaches to better understand local wildfire adaptation needs and suggest tailored actions, policies or agreements that will result in local action. Longitudinal and ongoing lessons from the community pathways team help illuminate patterns of wildfire adaptation across landscapes or locations and allow populations with similar circumstances to share lessons about the best practices they can use to advance wildfire adaptation. This presentation will outline the primary characteristics of the interactional approach and discuss how they are being used to better understand or inform various cross boundary initiatives surrounding fire in the Wenacthcee, including: (1) varied responses to fuels treatment projects in the Methow Valley; (2) targeted planning for adaptation across diverse communities in Kittats county; and (3) support or conflict surrounding the incorporation of an agricultural area into a fire district serving an expanding urban area.The community pathways team uses frameworks and approaches they developed during decades of studying how communities adapt differently to wildfire.
