WELCOME MESSAGE

Responding to the severe and globally widespread wildland fires seasons of the 1980’s, representatives of government entities and private institutions of all continents organized, in Boston, USA, the 1st International Wildland Fire Conference – “Meeting Global Wildland Fire Challenges”.

Near the turn of the century, the 2nd conference was hosted in Vancouver, Canada, dedicated to “Wildland Fire and Sustainable Development”, attended participants from 38 countries. Since then, every 4 years, a growing community gets together on a different continent to learn from each other and share knowledge and expertise under the scope of integrated fire management.

ABOUT THE ILC


With the 1st International Wildland Fire Conference (IWFC) held in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., in 1989, a series of conferences was initiated aimed at promoting exchange of expertise and international cooperation in wildland fire management. These conferences have gathered thousands of participants around the world and are overseen by The International Liaison Committee (ILC), serving as an advisory and liaison body to the hosts of the conferences. The ILC recognizes that landscape fire management is an international issue, thus working closely with conference hosts and seeking new opportunities for sharing experiences in this area of knowledge. The host of the 9th Wildland Fire Conference will be announced in Porto, May 2023.
