Recruiting participants from academia, the private sector, national labs, and other nonprofits, the Wildland Fire Policy Accelerator produced 24 ideas […]
We’re looking for policy ideas to advance science, technology, and innovation to deliver dramatic progress and build a more inclusive America.
美国我s experiencing more frequent and intense wildland fires. While fire is a natural and normal ecological process, today’s fires are causing more destruction to people and property. A changing climate and our current policy responses are amplifying these negative effects. The U.S.’s response to wildland fire can be better informed by science, evidence, […]
We’re working with the National Science Policy Network (NSPN) to shape the future of science policy.
The U.S. bioeconomy is growing rapidly, innovation is needed to sustain and maintain this growth. Shaping policy to consider workforce development, advanced agriculture, bioindustrial and biotech sectors will be imperative to keep the needle moving forward.
美国我s experiencing more frequent and intense wildland fires, but policy informed by science, evidence, and Indigenous perspectives can lessen the disastrous effects.
The Federation of American Scientists is advancing production, use, and uptake of scientific evidence to improve policy outcomes across critical societal challenges. A New Evidence Era for Federal Government Evidence-based policy is the process of using high-quality information [evidence] to inform government decisions [policy]. 2018’s Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (Evidence Act) launched a new era in […]
