This Topical Issue of Fire invites Perspectives and Case Reports (syntheses and reviews) focused on ideas to transform how wildland fire governance is approached across the world. We start the Topical Issue with a Perspective that raises questions associated with taking a Tabula Rasa, or clean slate, "what if" reflection on wildfire governance. We welcome responses to that Perspective as well as additional contributions associated with the following themes:
- Perspectives on novel approaches that advance ways for coexisting (or living) with fire;
- Perspectives on local and national wildland fire policies, and how they are helping or hindering wildfire goals;
- Perspectives on what the shared stewardship of landscape fire means across the spectrum of actors;
- Perspectives on what it really means, as is so often advocated, to ‘increase fire on the landscape’;
- Perspectives of traditional ecological knowledge and how it can help to inform wildfire management.
