Coordination between areas is essential in wildfire preparedness and management. The Global Fire Monitoring Centre in Freiburg, Germany works towards this understanding between populations. Proper governance can help protect inhabitants from all socio-economic landscapes, as well as ecosystems and cultural heritage.
Smoke from wildfires can be very harmful to the population and the environment. The European Centre for Forest Fires in Athens, working inside the EUR-OPA Agreement, has focused on understanding the consequences of this smoke for human health, and how it could be used as an early detection system.
