Mongolia- prescribed burning techniques and implications

The First International Central Asian Wildland Fire Conference “Wildland Fires in Natural Ecosystems of the Central Asian Region: Ecology and Management Implications” (2-6 June 2008, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia) was addressed the most pressing issues of wildland fire management in Mongolia and neighbouring countries. It has been followed by the demonstration experiment of the use of prescribed fire. Since, that time several legislation issues were developed and use of prescribed fire is greatly appreciated by the agencies dealing with wildland fire management in the country.
