The 5th International Wildland Fire Conference, to be held in Sun City, South Africa, will provide a platform to bring together members of the science community with those involved in the technical operational fire management. This also includes those affected by fire and the authorities concerned and mandated with developing policies and strategies in wildland fire management. The goal of this collaboration is learning, innovating and sharing practices and lessons common to sustainable use of the environment, wildland fire risk management and disaster reduction at local, national, regional and global scales.

The presentations, exhibitions and insights offered by international professionals and experienced fire management personnel will appeal not only to fire and disaster risk management specialists, scientists and practitioners, but also to students, the conservation, commercial forestry and agriculture sectors, community leaders, policy and decision-makers.



The conference will be an Associated Event to the Third Session of the UNISDR Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction and will be connected to policy makers of about 180 countries by a panel discussion on video conference.
