      Mitigating Wildfire Risk to Human Communities. By using a strategic risk assessment framework enables evaluation of how reducing home ignition potential and reducing fuel loads, among other strategic options, can affect various risk factors, which can in turn guide cost-effective investments in risk mitigation efforts (31, 32).Applying such a framework requires an understanding of the Cited by: Applying historical ecology to natural resource management institutions: Lessons from two case studies of landscape fire management Get the CIFOR publications update CIFOR publishes over publications every year on forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy, agroforestry and much more in multiple by:

The process includes risk assessment, consequence analysis, evaluation and design of risk reduction/mitigation measures, cost benefit analysis and support in implementation of risk reduction measures.From the card:'The analysis of alternative fire management programs should be integrated into the land and resource management planning process, but a single fire management analysis model cannot meet all planning needs.

Therefore, a set of simulation models that are analytically separate from integrated land management planning models are required.
