Between 1991 and 1999 the Global Fire Monitoring Center published eight reports on the fire situation in Mongolia. These reports cover general descriptions of the natural and socio-economic conditions determining the occurrence of fires in the country, reports on multilateral cooperation in wildland fire management, and use of remote sensing technologies. The reports are published in International Forest Fire News (IFFN) and contain statistical information on wildland fire.
