We feature stories and information from a diversity of perspectives including successes, lessons learned, resources, and even failures related to community wildfire resilience.
Each blog is categorized by the blue topical sections of the FAC Graphic to the right. Looking for inspiration or where to begin with a new element of fire adaptation? Sort the posts by topic using the filter feature below.
Editor’s Note: Content is contributed by practitioners from around the world. Publication does not necessarily indicate an endorsement by FAC Net, network members, or funders. While posts are edited for clarity and length, stories are from the authors’ perspective and voice. We strive to create an open learning environment where a variety of perspectives can be heard.
