Responding to the severe and globally widespread wildland fires seasons of the 1980’s, representatives of government entities and private institutions of all continents organized, in Boston, USA, the 1st International Wildland Fire Conference – “Meeting Global Wildland Fire Challenges”.
Near the turn of the century, the 2nd conference was hosted in Vancouver, Canada, dedicated to “Wildland Fire and Sustainable Development”, attended participants from 38 countries. Since then, every 4 years, a growing community gets together on a different continent to learn from each other and share knowledge and expertize under the scope of integrated fire management.
