    A Vision for Risk Management in Fire The Federal Wildland Fire Management and Program Review, which is the basis of all interagency fire management efforts, recognized the importance of risk management, stating that “Sound risk management is a foundation for all fire management activities.” Twenty years later, that statement stillFile Size: KB. This book concerns the different aspects of forest fires, the impact of fire on both forest resources (e.g. forest cover) and communities that use different forest functions. Therefore, forest fires have their environmental, economic and social consequences, and none of them is less important. Forest fires can be caused by both natural forces and anthropogenic factors, and in the latter case.

The Forest Principles (also Rio Forest Principles, formally the Non-Legally Binding Authoritative Statement of Principles for a Global Consensus on the Management, Conservation and Sustainable Development of All Types of Forests) is a document produced at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the "Earth Summit").

It is a non-legally binding document that makes. The Forest Principles, developed at the Earth Summit - the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED, held in Brazil in ) - have defined forest management as a part of a Statement of Principles for a global consensus on the management, conservation and Sustainable development of all types of forests; it is expressed in.

Societies that are confronted with potentially destructive forest or wildland fires develop fire management organizations to modify fire's impact on people, the things they value, and the ecosystems about which they are concerned.

The social, economic, and political institutions that control it determine a fire management organization's objectives. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has been using and managing fire safely and cost-effectively since the 's, leading to lands being in relatively better ecological condition overall, with lower risk of catastrophic fire.

This long-term, balanced approach to fire management benefits both people and wildlife. Suffice it to say, evidence shows that managing forests under principles of ecological forest management, including considering historical fire regimes, implementing longer rotations and leaving higher levels of retention, makes forests less susceptible and more resilient to the effects of catastrophic fires, and leads to higher rates of carbon.

Module 4: Fire Management Overview This module focuses on the history and social contexts of fire management, how those contexts influence policies, how fire management evolved over time, and basic fire management objectives.
