The International Association of Wildland Fire's (IAWF) Fire & Climate 2022 Conference will concentrate our attention on the most significant forces shaping wildland fire today and better prepare us to focus and respond to the formidable challenges of tomorrow.
The Fire & Climate Conference 2022 is relevant for researchers and practitioners with expertise in a range of wildland fire areas including air quality monitoring and/or regulation, land management, fire responders, public health, fire weather, climate change and forecasting, among others. The conference will leverage the lessons learned in recent extreme wildfire seasons around the globe and discuss emerging adaptive behaviors to benefit the entire international wildland fire community.
The conference will be held in Pasadena, California on May 23- 27, 2022 and in Melbourne, Australia on June 6-10, 2022.
During these conferences, participants will discuss the latest scientific advances, explore how scientific information is being put to practical use in the field and utilized to inform public policy, as well as consider gaps and limits in our current understanding.
