Fire probability in South American Protected Areas

Source(s):  Met Office
Newton Fund

This report identifies priority areas with a high probability of fire threat, in order to support decision making and planning strategies to mitigate the risk and impact of fires. The focus is on South American protected areas, given the importance of protecting these areas of high biological, environmental and socio-cultural value.

Among the recommendations (p. 9), the authors highlight the importance of early identification of Protected Areas under High Alert and Alert conditions. In these areas strategic planning and communication networks can be implemented, to enable the population living inside and in the surroundings to plan for minimising the risk and impacts of uncontrolled wildfires.
