Circumpolar Wildland Fire Project

Circumpolar Coordination on Wildfire Prevention, Preparedness and Response

This project aims to improve the coordinated response by Arctic States and Permanent Participants in response to catastrophic wildland fires in the Arctic region, and to promote the possibility of international cooperation and contracting of wildland fire resources across State boundaries, as well as coordinate trainings between relevant agencies so that emergency prevention, preparedness and response to wildland fire is effective and contemporary.

The Wildland Fire Project is lead by the Gwich'in Council International and was approved in EPPR in early 2020.
