Title: Community Wildfire Protection Plans: Enhancing Collaboration and Building Social Capacity

Project Proposal Abstract: Multi-stakeholder collaboration has a long tradition in natural resource management. Recent initiatives such as the National Fire Plan have encouraged collaboration in wildland fire and fuels management. Collaboration for fuels management has received even greater impetus with the enactment of the Healthy Forest Restoration Act of 2003 (HFRA). One of the key features of HFRA is the development of Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs). In this project we intend to study CWPP efforts in order to identify those factors and processes that consistently lead to effective collaborative fire and fuels management as defmed by HFRA, and enhance local social capacity to sustain wildfire protection activities into the future. We are particularly interested in the role of pre-JIFRA multistakeholder collaborative efforts in the development of CWPPs. Outcomes of the study will be (1) an improvement in the ability of agencies, organizations, communities, and citizens to work together collaboratively to reduce the risk of wildland fire, and (2) enhancement in the social capacity of communities by understanding how CWPP activities overcome barriers and enhance opportunities for planning and implementing fuels reduction projects.
