Navigating and addressing the complex interactions of climate, fire and fuels management is not an easy task for forest planners and land managers to undertake within the southern US. On February 18th, Lisa Jennings, North Carolina State University, and Emrys Treasure, USFS, Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center, will present an interactive workshop exploring the effects of climate change on fire and fuel management using the Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) at the 4th annual Fire Behavior and Fuels Conference in Raleigh, NC.

TACCIMO, a web-based tool that integrates peer-reviewed research with management and planning options, highlights elements from the wealth of climate change science to give natural resource planners and managers a credible starting point to guide critical thinking and support all aspects of natural resource management decision making. This workshop will provide an interactive opportunity for attendants to become familiar with TACCIMO by exploring website functions and case-studies.
