Shared knowledge case: Mafra Flamework 2018 Exchange of experts


This Exchange of Experts EoE between Germany and Portugal on wildfire training was supported by the European Forest Risk Facility. It had a special focus on the use of fire as a tool. Either for tactical burning like burn-out or backfiring operations or for preventive measures to reduce the avaiable fuel before the fire season with planned, mild and controlled fire. The concept of using fire as a tool is a new technique for many countries, Germany included.

The two German participants were in a international team working in the Mafra municipality in Portugal. The rainin was hosted by our Forest Risk Facility network member Carlos Trindade. Thank you for this opportunity and your hospitality!

In this exchange we also worked on a train-the-trainers concept as the two German participants will act as trainers and multipliers when back in Germany and provide training for the forest administartion of Lower-Saxony for instance.
