What are consensus-driven, evidence-based approaches to identify and communicate the human health implications of wildfires versus ecological restoration-focused forest management, including managed fires?
Team Status: NEW
Team Critical Challenge:
Goals
  • Synthesize approaches of incorporating human health implications into forest restoration planning, based on best available evidence.
  • Produce a public report with guidance on how consensus driven, evidence-based approaches may be adapted for local contexts in the Western U.S., as well as other locations facing more frequent and severe wildfires as a result of land management and climate change.
  • Create a toolkit to help implementing organizations communicate and coordinate about the relative human health implications of smoke from wild and managed fires.
