About this event

Joint Workshop

Hosted by the General Directorate of Forestry Türkiye in cooperation with Silva Mediterranean (FAO) and FOREST EUROPE

The intensity, frequency, and widespread of wildfires are rapidly increasing and despite advanced firefighting mechanisms and increasing public and political awareness, the increasing complexity and consequences related to wildfires demand for international cooperation to support the development, adoption and transfer of innovative solutions and actions to prevent and better control wildfires across Europe.

Therefore, the General Directorate of Forestry Türkiye, Silva Mediterranea (the Committee on Mediterranean Forestry Questions-Silva Mediterranea under FAO) and FOREST EUROPE are organizing a joint workshop in order to support capacity building to prevent and control wildfires as well as to share the best practices while establishing cooperation and strong partnerships. This joint workshop is scheduled to take place from October 24 to October 27 2022 in Antalya, Türkiye, and will be hosted by the General Directorate of Forestry Türkiye.

The preliminary program for the workshop includes the objectives to:

• Strengthen international/regional cooperation and coordination. Building capacity in prevention, preparedness and response among networks;

• Development of fire-resistant and fire-resilient forest landscapes. Best practices on prevention, adaptation and post-fire management;

• Use and exchange of technological developments and innovative approaches.

We invite you to mark the workshop in your calendars and already register under the following link whether you are interested to participate in order to allow the organizers to proceed with the necessary logistical arrangements.

We look forward to your participation and feedbacks. Further details will be shared soon.
