Arctic Council Wildland Fire Projects

Wildland fires are increasing in frequency, severity, and area across the Arctic, bringing challenges as well as opportunities and requiring greater collaboration, knowledge sharing, and partnership. GCI is leading two projects in CAFF and EPPR to advance work on wildland fires at the Arctic Council. Projects usually have a Steering Committee, objectives, and intended uses, summarized below. Projects are connected through their overarching goal of addressing wildland fires in the Arctic with a circumpolar focus. Knowledge sharing is a key component of both projects, and a workshop is planned to bring people working in ecology, management, and response together and review draft project deliverables.
