Population and Just Societies Program scientists will present and discuss latest IIASA research at the hybrid conference "Fire Ecology Across Boundaries conference: Connecting Science and Management" organized by The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) and Pau Costa Foundation (PCF), partnering with Regione Toscana and University of Florence.
This conference focuses on connecting fire ecology research and management across geographic and disciplinary boundaries. The conference will cover a wide range of topics to address the main challenges of wildfires in the era of climate change with the perspective of fire ecology.
The present challenges stress the need to enhance the debate on solutions, including the inefficiency of wildfire suppression at all cost, the use of more traditional landscape management for preservation of ecosystems under a changing climate, the benefits of prescribing fire to maintain long-term ecosystem services, and the need for establishing a wildfire risk culture.
The conference provides a forum for managers, scientists, educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders to share and discuss the key wildland fire issues and topics.
