OUR VIEWPOINT

  • Fires, forests and peoples: knowledge and practices under threat

    Forest peoples’ knowledge and practices of the use and management of controlled fire in forests have been identified within climate change policies as the cause of forest fires. Nevertheless, fire is critical for ensuring the food and cultural sovereignty of forest peoples.
