Support to Wildfire Management in LAC - (FPI Initiative 2020-2023)


The FPI initiative builds on more than 20 years of collaboration in fire management and the development of fire information systems in the pan-European region. The main objective has been to collaborate with stakeholders in Latin America and the Caribbean towards a strategic, targeted and comprehensive approach to managing forest fires in the region. This initiative was conceived in 2020 and contributed to the establishment of the European Group of Experts on Forest Fires (GEFF LAC), the purpose of which has been to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and best practices on forest fire management among project member countries. The continuity of this project in the Amazonia Plus Programme will be ensured through the International Partnerships (International Partnerships/INTPA) department.
