U.S. Geological Survey Wildland Fire Science Strategic Plan, 2021-26: U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1471   [open pdf - 8MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The USGS [U.S. Geological Survey] Wildland Fire Science Strategic Plan (hereafter, Strategic Plan) was developed by USGS fire scientists and executive leadership, and was informed by discussions with external stakeholders. The Strategic Plan is aligned with the needs of the fire science stakeholder community--fire, land, natural resource, and emergency managers from Federal, State, Tribal, and community organizations and members of the broad scientific community. The Strategic Plan also defines critical, core fire science capabilities for understanding fire-related and fire-responsive earth system processes and patterns and informing management decision making. The Strategic Plan is composed of four integrated priorities, each with associated goals and specific strategies for accomplishing the goals: 'Priority 1: Produce state-of-the-art, actionable fire science.' [...] 'Priority 2: Engage stakeholders in science production and science delivery.' [...] 'Priority 3: Effectively communicate USGS fire science capacity, products, and information to a broad audience.' [...] 'Priority 4: Enhance USGS organizational structure and advance support for fire science.'"
