WWF-IUCN PROJECT “FIREFIGHT SOUTH EAST ASIA”


 WWF – The World Wide Fund for Nature and IUCN – The World Conservation Union have joined forces to develop “Project FireFight South East Asia”. Implementation of the project was initiated in March 2000 with support from the EU. The project seeks to secure essential policy reform through a strategy of advocacy using syntheses and analysis of existing information supporting new outputs. The project operates at national and regional level across South East Asia making efforts to support and advocate the creation of legislative and economic bases for mitigating harmful anthropogenic forest fires.

Products and insights are being developed in each of the three themes: Economics of Fire Uses, Community Based Fire Management (CBFiM) and Legal and Regulatory Aspects of Forest and Land Fires. A key requirement for Project FireFight South East Asia is clear targeting of messages to identified audiences and stakeholders using appropriate and effective mechanisms.
