TransParcNet Meeting 2023
“Fire and Water – How to deal with ‘natural’ disasters in transboundary parks cooperation?”

German-Dutch Nature Park Maas-Schwalm-Nette, 21-13 June 2023

Climate Change and its effects does not stop at borders. Whether it is dry summers leading to forest fires, or high amounts of rain in a small-time frame causing flooding, these disasters require a transnational approach. “Fire and water – how to deal with ‘natural’ disasters in transboundary cooperation?” was the topic of the 2023 TransParcNet meeting, the annual gathering of EUROPARC’s Transboundary Park Areas.

During the meeting, professionals discovered and discussed how Transboundary Protected Areas can work together to prevent and manage “natural” disasters. The programme included lectures, workshops, excursions and, of course, cultural evenings. The meeting was hosted by the German-Dutch Nature Park Maas-Schwalm-Nette (DE-NL), from 20 – 23 June 2023. Around 35 participants from 13 countries took part of the event.

The GFMC contribution addressed “Fire Management and Wildfire Risk Reduction in Cross-boundary Protected Areas” (presented by GFMC Chief J.G. Goldammer).
