Description

From the text ... 'A cooperative regional strategy has been developed to mitigate the negative effects of fires in the region. The Fire Management Cooperation Strategy for the Caribbean 2006-2011, developed jointly with the representatives of the most fire-affected countries of the Caribbean and supported by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and the Global Fire Monitoring Center, aims to encourage and coordinate the exchange of knowledge, experience, and technical and human resources among Caribbean countries through a consolidated regional mechanism. This mechanism is a bilateral and multilateral fire management cooperation effort for reducing the social and economic impacts of fires that affect forests and other types of vegetation in the region.'
