Fire Ecology Across Boundaries: Connecting Science and Management

4-7 October 2022, Florence, Italy

The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) and Pau Costa Foundation (PCF) are partnering with Regione Toscana and University of Florence to host a hybrid conference in Florence (Italy) and online for diverse stakeholders involved in wildfire management. This conference will be a meeting point for international wildfire and landscape managers, scientists, policy makers, communicators and other representatives from national, regional and local organizations. All plenary sessions will be interpreted into multiple languages, including at least Italian, Spanish, and English. 

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. 

We aim to provide a forum for managers, scientists, educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders to share and discuss the key wildland fire issues and topics below:
