Wildland fire is a significant and growing threat to communities and natural resources on Hawaii and the U.S.- affiliated Pacific Islands, including Wildland fire is a significant and growing threat to communities and natural resources on Hawaii and the U.S.- affiliated Pacific Islands. Collaborative approaches to fire management are critical because multiple interacting factors --including climate, ecosystem composition, land use history, social-ecological impacts, and cultural perceptions --create highly complex problems. However, identifying effective strategies to promote dialogue and knowledge exchange among practitioners and researchers and to bridge the “science management divide” remains a challenge. Here, we outline our process of facilitating bidirectional knowledge exchange to meet fire management needs for the Pacific Island region.
