Join us in supporting and/or attending the 2nd Annual National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy WorkshopMaking a Difference – Building Capacity, Improving Preparedness, and Learning from Experience in Reno, Nevada, March 26—29, 2018.

The International Association of Wildland Fire is presenting this workshop in partnership with the Wildland Fire Leadership Council (WFLC) and the Western, Southeast and Northeast Regional Strategy Committees.

 In order to maintain focus and strengthen Cohesive Strategy activities, a national workshop was held in 2017.  This workshop addressed the role of science in supporting implementation and identified processes to ensure science integration in all planning and implementation activities.  While this workshop was very successful and significant milestone, two important lessons emerged from it.  

 First, since planning and implementation activities to meet challenges identified by the Cohesive Strategy have not been fully examined, there is much to be learned from experiences to date and a strong need for continuing discussions that warrant a stage like a national workshop.  

 Second, wildland fire issues facing society today and into the future are not declining but are, in fact, escalating.  There is a timely need to continue, and accelerate, a comprehensive program of work to focus on these issues. 

As a result, it has been determined that a second workshop will be held in 2018 to continue the direction established by the first workshop and to support Cohesive Strategy activities.
