Wildland Fire Research Framework 2019-2022

The purpose of this document is to outline the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) wildland fire priorities and coordinate the EPA Office of Research and Development’s (ORD’s) wildland-fire-related research across multiple National Research Programs (NRPs) to be implemented under their new 2019-2022 Strategic Research Action Plans (StRAPs). This document also provides background information on wildland fire research as it relates to EPA’s mission; a narrative of the existing ORD research portfolio; and a landscape of future work that is within the purview, expertise, and capacity of ORD. Additionally, this research framework outlines an approach for collaborative research activities with other federal partners.
