A multiple criteria approach to integrate wildfire behavior in forest management planning

Project Details


The aim of this project is to bring together multidisciplinary state-of-the-art knowledge on forest ecosystems models, wildfire simulation, forest ecosystem management planning methods, forest policy and economics and stakeholder engagement and research dissemination, to develop scientifically sound methods and design tools that may help forest policy and decision makers address the challenge of integrating wildfire concerns in landscape-level forest management planning. This will encompass the development, integration, and utilization of a forest management planning wildfire behavior model, tools to simulate decision spaces under scenarios of climate change and spatial optimization and multiple criteria approach that may help select from those decision spaces plans that may address effectively wildfire concerns by forest stakeholders.
