Resilient landscapes to face catastrophic forest fires: global insights towards a new paradigm
International conference about new holistic paradigm for managing forest fire risk based on the creation of resilient landscapes will be held on 14-15 October 2019 in Madrid. It is organised by the European Forest Institute (EFI) and the National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA), with support from the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Association of Forest Engineers.
The conference will include case studies, presentations, panel discussions and open debate in order to explore how leading scientific research on the socioeconomic dimensions of wildfire prevention can be translated into potential actions for a clear path forward to co-construct fire resilient landscapes in the Mediterranean and beyond.
Expert keynote speakers include David E. Calkin, from the Rocky Mountain Research Station in the United States, and Peter F. Moore from the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.More information and registration
