Associated Consultation of the Regional Central Asia Wildland Fire Network

On 8 September 2005 a one-day meeting of the Regional Central Asia Wildland Fire Network will be held. Participants from Central Asian countries, notably Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and parts of the Russian Federation will:

  • reporting about the wildland fire situation in their countries
  • discuss mechanisms of regional cooperation in wildland fire science
  • prepare recommendations for bi-lateral and multilateral agreements of cooperation in wildland fire management and emergency response
  • prepare recommendations for capacity building involving neighbouring countries

The consultation will be chaired by the Global Fire Monitoring Center (J.G. Goldammer).
