Networks and working groups

As a neutral global institution, FAO hosts secretariats for global and regional networks on fire management as well as a relevant FAO-statuary body:

FAO also works closely with regional networks and working groups from:
North America
Mesoamerica
South America
Caribbean

FAO is member of the European Forest Fire Information (EFFIS) Network (http://forest.jrc.ec.europa.eu/effis/about-effis/effis-network) of the European Union which meets twice a year i.e. before and after the main fire season. More information of the EFFIS at http://forest.jrc.ec.europa.eu/effis/about-effis/

FAO is also member of the Wildland Fire Advisory Group, which brings the existing regional networks and working groups together and which meets once a year.
