Community Wilfire Protection Plans: Enhancing Collaboration & Building Community Capacity

Printer Friendly View 

Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPP’s) are one of the more important means of reducing risk to communities and ecosystems of catastrophic wildfires. Enhancing collaboration and building community capacity are viewed as a means insuring that these plans are responsive to the needs and objectives of communities located in the wildland-urban interface.

This site describes an applied research project that seeks to analyze the lessons learned about collaborative processes among approximately ten CWPP development processes in the United States.

Over the coming months it will also be a means of sharing the lessons discovered during the case studies.
