Title: Develop a Landscape-Scale Framework for Interagency Wildland Fuels Management Planning

Project Proposal Abstract: This project proposes to develop and test an approach to incorporate wildland fuels management information into an interagency, landscape-scale planning framework. A spatial and attribute information system will be created for coordinated fuels management planning within an integrated Geographic Information System (GIS) framework. The primary goals are to reduce fiscal costs to both government agencies and the public and to improve attainment of ecological and hazard reduction goals across jurisdictional boundaries, This work focuses on utilizing geographic information and related technologies to overcome institutional barriers to interagency fuels management within very large, diverse ecosystems. Landscape-scale planning is very difficult within ecologically complex ecosystems that are socially and politically tangled in an irregular pattern of land ownership with diverse management goals. The framework proposed will be both consistent and dynamic to meet the varied long-range ecological, fire hazard, and risk reduction goals of all impacted agencies. Common geographic data will be developed, including comprehensive planning maps and analyses that prioritize areas for treatment based on value, hazard, and risk criteria. An interagency analysis process will be integrated into a coordinated plan to prioritize fuel treatment areas across a wide variety of fuel types and over a large geographic area. This framework will develop and test procedures to manage and update complex spatial information and to institutionalize the coordinated planning efforts. Results and recommendations will be well documented and widely presented, including a workshop to guide other geographic areas in the establishment of their own multi-jurisdictional GIS framework.
