Adaptation of the fire management plans

Objective

Improve monitoring capacities, prevent fire risks, improve response in case of fire events and rehabilitation of damaged ecosystems and infrastructures.

Description

Fire management plans provide actions for a specific area, aimed at preventing fires, protecting people, property and forests from fire events, and using fire to accomplish forest management and other land-use objectives. Any effective fire management programme must take in consideration the ecology and fire history of the considered area, as well as the knowledge of fire regimes, probable fire effects, values at risk, level of forest protection required, cost of fire-related activities and prescribed fire technology.

Expected results

Promote sustainable forest management practices with potential benefits on sustainable silviculture, agriculture, livestock and watershed management.
