& socio-ecological-economic solutions for fire resilient territories in Europe
Extreme wildfire events beyond any control are becoming a major environmental economic and social threat across the world.
FIRE-RES will develop an integrated fire management strategy to efficiently and effectively address extreme wildfire events in Europe.
FIRE-RES is built around the concept of Integrated Fire Management. This is a planning and operational approach that includes social, economic, cultural and ecological dimensions. Its objective is to minimize the damage caused by wildfires and maximize its benefits.
To do this, FIRE-RES includes 4 main pillars.
FIRE-RES adopts the Integrated Fire Management Approach.
This wildfire risk reduction strategy exploits synergies between fire prevention-preparedness, detection-response and restoration-adaptation in a holistic manner, assuming the interconnectedness of these 3 phases.
