A Region of the Global Wildland Fire Network

Rationale and Introduction

Initiatives to foster the cooperation in wildland fire issues in the Baltic region go back to the late 1990s and were a focus activity of the Work of the UN-ECE/FAO Team of Specialists on Forest Fire until 2014. With the creation of the Global Wildland Fire Network the regional cooperation was instrumental under the Regional Baltic Wildland Fire Network, later entitled Regional Eurasian Wildland Fire Network. The network is one of six networks within the region of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

The overall aim of the regional initiative that is described in the documents provided below is in line with the Baltic 21 Action Programme, an initiative for the application of the Agenda 21 in the Baltic Sea Region, Article 15 of the Helsinki Convention, and the objectives of the work of the Nordic Council.
