Steelman to examine wildfire policy

Dr. Toddi Steelman will be the featured speaker of the Thomas S. Foley Institute public lecture Thursday, Feb. 23 at 3:30 p.m. in CUE 518.

Steelman, an associate professor of environmental and natural resource policy at North Carolina State University, will examine “Is a Sustainable Wildfire Policy Possible?”

The lecture will analyze the past five years since wildfire policy change, evaluate whether proposed goals have been met, and suggest obstacles to overcome for sustainable wildfire policy.

Steelman’s research focuses on the role and function of public and community involvement within the larger context of environmental governance.  Current and past projects have included watershed remediation and management, land and open space protection, national forest planning and community forestry, and wildfire.  She is the co-author of Collaborative Environmental Management: What Role for Government?  and Adaptive Governance: Integrating Science, Policy and Decision Making and numerous journal articles and book chapters.
