On August 2, 2013, the DRAFT of the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy and Risk Analysis Report (National Strategy) (PDF, 2.8 MB) was posted on the Cohesive Strategy website (http://www.forestsandrangelands.gov/leadership/WFEC/index.shtml). This is the third and, when completed, will be the final report in the effort to develop a national collaborative approach for a comprehensive, science-based cohesive strategy that addresses wildland fire management challenges across all lands and jurisdictions as directed by the Federal Land Assistance, Management and Enhancement Act of 2009.
Information on submitting feedback on the draft report is available on the Cohesive Strategy site. The deadline is August 23, 2013.
Note that the Joint Fire Science Program‘s recent announcement of possible topics for FY2014 funding (see our post of June 25, below) references the three goals of the Cohesive Strategy.
