On April 27-28, 2022, the Aspen Institute Energy & Environment Program and The Nature Conservancy convened a hybrid workshop (with both virtual and in-person participants in Boulder, Colorado) — the fourth in a series on U.S. wildfire resilience. Building off of past roundtable conversations around the passage of the bipartisan infrastructure law and its unprecedented levels of funding for wildfire resilience work, this convening brought together state, Tribal, federal, NGO, and other experts to create a shared understanding of the scale, distribution, and impacts of post-fire reforestation needs; explore what is being done to address them; and develop recommendations to address gaps and barriers. This summary captures key points from presentations provided during the workshop, along with key topics of discussion.
