Fire Behaviour and Fuels Conference

15-19 April 2024

Canberra, Australia

Fuel, Fire and Smoke: evolving to meet our climate challenge

Wildfires present an increasing challenge to humanity and the ecosystems and atmosphere we depend on.  The ability of societies to respond to larger and more destructive wildfire events and mitigate against further climate impacts is also increasingly challenged.  As our climate changes, and the effects are experienced in unique ways across diverse settings and societies, understanding fire behavior and human responses to this is even more critical.

The 7th International Fire Behaviour and Fuels Conference offers a forum where past Fire Management experience and lessons learned are documented, current work showcased, and emerging research, innovation and techniques on fire management shared, towards developing integrated solutions to these challenges.

This conference on three continents provides an opportunity to showcase how different countries can implement newly developed fire management policies and frameworks at national, regional and local levels to address fire risks and build resilience.  The Conference will unite policy makers, scientists, fire managers and Indigenous land stewards for a shared purpose and a different future living with fire.
