Description

The datasets distributed from the new "County Profiles" portal are designed to be used for Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change compliant fire activity reporting and emission inventories. From the new portal, users can access tables, maps and interactive charts that summarize the current and past fire activity for each country, such as the area burned, the fire seasonality, the number and size of fire events. It is the first global fire data portal specifically developed for policy support, so the researchers expect the datasets to be widely used in national fire assessments and to support wildfire management and risk reduction.
