Association for Fire Ecology Conference: Fire Ecology Across Boundaries
Visit conference website.
The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) and Pau Costa Foundation (PCF) are partnering with Regione Toscana and University of Florence to host a conference in Florence, Italy for diverse stakeholders involved in wildfire management. Experts from Europe and around the world are invited to gather in Florence to share fire ecology science and expertise. This conference will be a meeting point for international wildfire and landscape managers, scientists, policy makers, communicators and other representatives from national, regional and local organizations.
The conference aims to increase the interaction of the wildfire community across boundaries to more effectively exchange knowledge and understanding about the contribution of fire ecology on fire management. Such coordination is needed to help providing solutions that balance ecological processes and wildfire risk reduction. This collaborative event will provide a space to understand and discuss the global wildfire situation and regional challenges, the uncertainties that need to be addressed, and also to share solutions on wildfire mitigation.
