The Regional Fire Management Training for Mongolia and Central Asia

 

    

  


  

Among its multiple functions FMRC-CAR is addressing the increasing demand on collection and distribution of data and information relevant to fire management with the regional neighbourhoods, the facilitation in capacity building in fire management at regional level and the exchange of human and technical resources where needed. The Regional Fire Management Training for Mongolia and Central Asia was held on 21-25 September 2015, Forestry Research and Training Center, Batsumber, Tuv province, Mongolia. In the training, fire management authorities from neighboring Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan were participated. EuroFire competency standard materials were used during the training, fire managers and local firefighters were enthusiastic about the training materials. Mongolian version of the EuroFire standards soon will be added to thewww.euro-fire.eu

Fire Ecology Research

 

    

  


  In order to support the transboundary fire management activities, the RCAFMRC has conducted a research project “Estimating grass fuel loads with a disk pasture meter and GIS tools in north-eastern Mongolian steppe” were the most border crossing fires occurs. Determining and mapping the amount of grass available to burn can help fire managers, land managers accurately predict fire behaviour and manage the risk. The field study was done between 26 June and 7 July 2015 and data analysis is under processing. The results of this research will be delivered to the border authorities, local government of the regions and the national emergency management agency for their use. This research was funded by the National University of Mongolia “Project No. 3C 2015 SEAS-19”.
