Developing a holistic, risk-wise strategy for European wildfire management.


A risk-centred management strategy integrating wildfire prevention, suppression, and restoration practices and policies and implementing an operational platform of coordination, professional training, and exercises is demanded to address mega-fires, the wildland urban interface, and the fire challenges in Europe.


Develop, evaluate and disseminate a science-based integrated strategy to: 1) expand current wildland fire risk assessment systems, including critical factors of risk previously not covered; 2) produce effective measures to reduce current fire risk conditions, and 3) adapt management strategies to expected future climate and socio-economic changes.


Deliver innovative risk-informed regional planning approaches that are effective in increasing the resilience of local communities, ensuring safety and enhancing protection of assets and economic activity.
