Wildland fire management programs and fire suppression is multi-faceted, spanning intellectual disciplines and administrative boundaries. Planning and implementing fire management programs requires knowledge and experience in fire science, ecosystem ecology, fuel dynamics, decision and management science; as well as knowledge of fire suppression techniques, tools, and equipment; all blended with an understanding of people and communities. The goal of the third international symposium on fire economics, policy and planning: common problems and approaches is for participants to learn about new scientific developments, discover new technologies, exchange ideas, and explore fire management issues and solutions from around the world.
