Periodic Report - FIRESMART (Forest and land management options to prevent unwanted forest fires)

Project ID: 243840
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

Forests are a vital renewable resource in Europe, benefiting both society and economy; however they are severely threatened by fires.

The FIRESMART project, which was funded under the European Commission's (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), aimed to identify obstacles to the effectiveness of forest fire preventive measures, as well as to derive recommendations to integrate prevention practices in regular forest management plans, in order to assist in environmental protection.

This publishable Report firstly refers to the FIRESMART background and objectives and then presents the consortium partners. It also briefly includes the results that were obtained during the reporting period. The document closes with an overview of the anticipated final project results and their potential impact.
