With the increasing threat and occurrence of catastrophic fire events around the globe, the need for new strategies for wildfire prevention and protection is clear. “Resilient landscapes to face catastrophic forest fires: global insights towards a new paradigm” is a two-day, high-level international conference that will bring together stakeholders and experts to propose holistic approaches for fire resilient landscapes that better integrate socioeconomic aspects of fire prevention.

The conference, to be held on 14-15 October 2019 in Madrid, is coorganised by the European Forest Institute (EFI) and the National Institute for Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA), with support from the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Association of Forest Engineers.
