Working Group 4 : Wildland Fire
Since 2004: ISDR Global Wildland Fire Network and Wildland Fire Advisory
Chair: Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC), Freiburg, Germany
Between 2001 and 2003 the Working Group on Wildland Fire (WG-4)
supported the mandate of the ISDR Inter-Agency Task Force for Disaster
Reduction (IATF) by establishing an interagency and inter-sectoral
forum on Wildland Fire of UN and non-UN agencies and programmes to
facilitate the creation of mechanisms of information and task sharing
to prevent and reduce the negative impacts of vegetation fires on
the environment and humanity.
Following the final report and recommendations of WG-4 and the decisions
of the 8th meeting of the Inter-Agency Task Force for Disaster Reduction
the work of WG-4 phased out at the end of 2003 and developed into
the ISDR Global Wildland Fire Network. The advisory function has
been taken over by the ISDR Wildland Fire Advisory Group. Regularly
