International Wildland Fire Conferences

Welcome to the website of the International Wildland Fire Conferences!


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:

7th International Wildland Fire Conference was hosted in Campo Grande, Brazil, in 2019

The conference website will be permanent and can be monitored for post-conference updates:

  • IWFC 7 – 2019 (28 October – 1 November 2019, Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil)
