Abstract

Amid the many talks at the International Association of Wildland Fires's (IAWF’s) Human Dimensions Conference this past March, one collaborative presentation examined the crucial role of collaboration amid countries with emerging fire regimes. The authors, led by Wildfire magazine Contributing Editor Cathelijne Stoof (The Netherlands and United States), Lisa Langer (New Zealand), Julia McMorrow (United Kingdom) and Brian Oswald (United States), observed that as changing fire regimes increase fire risk, there’s an urgency to tackle this vulnerability via international collaboration and exchange. For more of what they’ve discovered, visit the full article (excerpted here) and conference video at WildfireWorld.org.
