Catastrophic wildfires in the western United States pose significant risks to public health, infrastructure, and ecosystems. As these wildfires become more frequent, there is a growing need for a common methodology to identify suitable locations for prescribed burning aimed at mitigating future wildfire impacts to affected populations and ecosystems.
This webinar series highlights tribes and tribal organizations that have been addressing climate change impacts through conducting assessments and developing and implementing adaptation strategies. It also provides an overview of funding and technical resources that are available both regionally and nationally.
