Fire-smart landscapes as promising approach for effective adaptation and mitigation

The Egypt Hall

This panel session offers an opportunity to share integrated and context-specific fire management and fire risk reduction approaches that combine restoration and regeneration practices and traditional knowledge, as well as how these practices can be scaled up to become part of Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (NDCs). Panelists will provide practical examples of integrative approaches that take into account wildfire risk and climate change with a particular focus on the active involvement of Indigenous Peoples and local communities, local governments, and small and medium holders in wildfire-prone areas as key to developing more effective, country-specific, wildfire risk reduction strategies and policies.
