Understanding how future changes in climate will affect forest fires and associated emissions of greenhouse gases, in Europe and globally, is important to determine adaptation and potential of forests.
Understanding ecosystem's vulnerability and potential to adapt to such changes can help developing proactive and post-fire regeneration strategies.
Understanding how the changes in social and economic characteristics of the population can create conditions of increased fire across the various regions and countries, is a prerequisite to reduce the level of exposure of local communities through better landscape planning.
