A decade ago, the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC) published its first collection of articles in Fire Management Today to establish a greater awareness of international fire management. With this issue, our intent remains the same. The preceding articles offer snapshots of international fire management achievements, obstacles, and studies from nearly every region on the globe. As the matrix of human-environmental conditions continues to shift, it is clear that fire management as an interdisciplinary field will continue to grow globally.
