Understanding stakeholder perceptions of fire with mental modelling: a case study from Ashland, OR

Date: March 6, 2017
Presenter(s): Antonie Jetter

Many communities see the need to increase the use of beneficial fire, yet they struggle to find effective approaches that all stakeholders agree upon. We use mental modeling with Fuzzy Cognitive Maps to help stakeholders express their worldviews on fire use and share their insights with other stakeholder groups. Using our experience with a series of collaborative modeling sessions in Ashland, Oregon, we present the use of the method and its benefits to fire managers.
