International Wildland Fire Conferences

Welcome to the website of the International Wildland Fire Conferences!


Introduction

The International Wildland Fire Conferences were launched in 1989. The conferences aim to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and expertise in wildland (landscape) fire policies, research, management and capacity building in an international forum that will strengthen the abilities of individual nations to reduce the negative impacts of landscape fires on the environment and humanity; and to advance the knowledge and application of the ecologically and environmentally benign role of natural fire in fire-dependent ecosystems, and sustainable application of fire in land-use systems.

An International Liaison Committee (ILC) has been set up and is serving as an advisory and liaison body to the hosts of the conferences:
