Mississippi Wildfires

Similar to its other climate threats, Mississippi has done a lot of work to prepare for its current wildfire risks but has taken almost no actions to prepare for future risks. Mississippi has not conducted a statewide climate change vulnerability assessment or developed an adaptation plan related to wildfire, even though the state's wildfire threat is projected to see a large increase by 2050.
