Forest fires: climate change (DRMKC)
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.
Forest fires: fire ecology (DRMKC)
Understanding ecosystem's vulnerability and potential to adapt to such changes can help developing proactive and post-fire regeneration strategies.
Forest fires: social aspects (DRMKC)
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.
Forest fires: fire meteorology and danger rating (DRMKC)
Danger rating index is an important real time indicator for the fire fighters. It sums up constant (fuels, topography) and variable (weather) factors that affect the initiation, spread and difficulty of control, and subsequent fire damage of wildfires on an area in a single number that can be easily visualised and used for early alerting.
Achievement of the participants' goals during the exercise (INEGMA-E²)
As an evaluator one has to have a good understanding of what the participants want to achieve to be able to know, whether the scenarios of the supported these learning opportunities or not.
Evaluation of achievement of strategic goals (INEGMA-E²)
In strategic exercises the achievement of (pre-set) goals has to be validated. These are usually related to decision-making processes. Due to a variety of criteria and nuances in conditions for achievement this can pose a challenge to evaluators.
Registering the descriptive information (metadata) illustrating the circumstances of the observed exercise events (e.g. time, place, etc.), for future evaluation (INEGMA-E²)
To collect as much as possible information (metadata) describing the circumstances of the . This approach is in accordance with commonly used the evidence-based methodology, helping to draw more credible conclusions. The excessive registered information may be omitted during analysis, but unregistered information cannot be easily retrieved.
ACCESS TO ALL TYPES OF IN-GAME COMMUNICATIONS (INEGMA-E²)
The evaluating staff must have full / unrestricted access to all the media through which the target audience communicates.
