An Integrated Program of Wildfire Risk Management – The Case of Portugal

After the very violent fires of 2107 which caused 116 fatalities in Portugal, the country reacted proposing an extensive set of reforms that included the creation of a coordinating agency, modifications in several government agencies, detailed definition of the role of the various stakeholders, including the citizens, and the launching of an operative programme with several sectoral and transverse actions to prepare better the country for future events. This webinar promotes a reflection on the case of Portugal, to understand the philosophy of the proposed changes, their implementation and to have an assessment on their effectiveness, five years after the fires of 2017.
